Swim, fishies. Swim through the veil of steel.

In the world of alligator hunting, anything can happen. But not even Nostradamus could have predicted how this opening weekend would unfold.
There was excitement from the start as word spread that Brandon "Boo" Maskew of Ellisville had harvested a female alligator weighing 295.3 pounds and measuring 10 feet, breaking both the heaviest and longest records for a female.
By mid-morning Sunday, Beth Trammell of Madison sent out another shockwave. A first-time hunter, Trammell said her crew hooked up on a large gator after heading for a boat launch and calling it quits for the night.
With two lines on it, the animal fought hard for 1 1/2 hours and pushed Trammell's husband, Rob, and hunter Sean King, of Yazoo City to their physical limits. When the alligator finally surfaced beside the boat, Beth Trammell said, "Oh, my gosh. It's the Loch Ness monster."
