Update- thanks for the tips and ideas. I hate when people get advice but donít follow up so here it is. Caught(snagged) and reeled in with a spinning Rod. It was super fun recommend it to anyone that has interest.

Ended up going with central florida trophy hunts. I would recommend but they mentioned they would be high fencing at some point in the future so they can start doing exotics like axis deer and black buck. Probably wouldnít change the alligator hunting much I just donít like the idea of hunting inside a fence. They charge a bunch to process the meat which I paid and brought back. Other than the processing fee everything was awesome with them. They are good people

Holy Smokes.  The head size on that alligator is amazing.  Rifle hunt?  How far away for the shot?

You could shoot one and probably get 100 yards or less from them although you have a pretty small target.They go down once they see you and disappear under water.  We chose the bring them in with fishing poles just really heavy duty spinning rods. Itís quite the fight
