I remember an article in Huntsville Times ( I think back in the early 1980s ) about a very large gator ( approx 9 ft ) found dead in ( winter time) Blackwell swamp. We used to wade in there in the late 70s early 80s fishing for Largemouth Bass. Saw several gators but nothing over 4 feet long. The Bass fishing was great but we never carried any home.

A buddy of mine told me about a big one that used to lay out and sun near the old train trussel
over at Decatur.

There were not many of them then and I dont figure there are many now.

Gets to cold here, maybe there are more now due to the mild winters we have had.
