So I'm standing and reeling in a nice size LMB. While I am getting the hook out of his mouth and releasing him, my paddle slides out of the boat and is floating beside me. We apparently it was a little to far becauce as leaned out to reach it the PA12 decided it was time for me to swim and ejected me into the gator infested lake I was fishing in. Thankfully it was not hard to get back in! I had a good laugh to myself and im sure the people in the boat a few hundred yards away got a good laugh as well. I just thought I would share.

Nice LMB, but you were warned to leave the fish alone, they belong to the gators.

Eruption,

Where are you fishing? I can relate to your gator infested swim. I fish in Central Florida, mostly lake Toho, where there are large numbers of big gators and snakes. I have never been ejected from my yak but have been in the water twice from other boats. You seem more motivated to get yourself out of the water in those circumstances.
