Gator-getters stick a good one

It’s been a pretty slow alligator season thus far, with both numbers and weights down. But don’t tell that to local boys Colby Hollingsworth and Dillon Drury, who took this 13-foot, 6-inch gator in the St. Johns River near Welaka last Saturday. There’s no fishing report this week. We figured the forecast for 18-foot seas might slow down boat traffic, at least for the weekend.
