  1. Sorry, but being a “TRUE BORN NATIVE of FLORIDA”, all I can say is NO WAY!

    Not this time of evening and sure NOT this time of year {May/June} since IT IS ALLIGATOR MATING SEASON!

    That is the most dangerous time to be on ANY BODY of WATER in FLORIDA!

    And I’ve been and seen several alligators in lake Ivanhoe, you want to risk it, fine.

    But this True Native of Florida has better sense and will never go near Florida’s waterways and lakes during ‘gator mating season, it’s just not a very smart thing to do.
