We used to take chicken leg quarters and let them sit in the sun in a bucket till it made its own juice and would gag a maggot. Then take poles, make a brace and suspend the chicken above the water from a huge arse hook and close pin the line to the pole. Put about 40 feet of line coiled up on the bank.

This to the T

Trapping alligators isn't even something I like doing anymore because its so bastardized now.

Probably not but you gotta do what you gotta do.

My buddy had an 8 footer in his pond that would start swimming towards his dog, every time he came near the water. We scared him off but if that hadn't worked, we'd have put a .270 between his eyes, cleaned him, buried the carcass, and had fried gator for weeks. Good thing waving our arms and yelling worked.

We use a fishing pole with braided line and a ribbit frog on the end. Alligators seem to love it, an when we reel them close enough a whack with the paddle is all you need to knock them out and clean them
