    I will be attending a conference the end of March in Ponte Vedra and will be there a full day before the conference and a day after.
    What is the cheap entertainment for an outdoor guy. A friend said I needed to see the alligator wrestling and do some in-shore fishing. The motel offers free kayaks.
    I have always been intrigued about alligator hunting/fishing from the times in the 1980's when the Florida Trappers Association use to have feeds at trapper conventions.
    What else should I be doing. I prefer to avoid the spring breakers
    Thanks

    Your right there by St. Augustine. Oldest place you will ever see with some really beutiful things aroung there to do.

    Do a search of things around the area. TON of stuff to do, and your going about the right time too.

    Be safe, Good luck,

    That was already on my "list" I know the zoos are a but touristy some Im planning one of those.
    I would like to go on a gator hunt,.. but they might be beyond my budget.

    Up Date
    I can do a gotor hunt and I have to bring home some meat
    All I want are some teeth and it doesn't even need to from the one I kill. So are the small skins worth anything?

    I just want to chase a gator /gators. In reality Im willing to go with anyone and personally not kill a gator just be there.
    I don't have the money for a trophy hunt Im trading off a gator hunt for a Montana rifle elk tag in two years.
    Sort of like coon or lion hunting,.. just want to do it, get dirty , wet and stinky:yes

    When I went to Alaska 20 years ago I fished with a local guy who needed to fill his freezer. We bottom fished for a few hours, I helped process the fish and get them in his freezer in exchange for the fishing,.. filled his boat and pick-up with gas also

    I am checking into Scotts service. Thanks

    How about surf fishing? I live in Jacksonville.

    Depending on the date you are available we could fish in that area.

    Is the possibility of pompano and possibly a shark sound fun?
