A net increases the bet

Felipe Santiago, left, and Cesar Alvarez standby to help haul in the catch as Alejandro Ochoa casts a net into the white water just below the Eagle & Phenix Mill Falls. These guys were a blast to watch. They were like a group of giddy school boys every time they pulled the net in to reveal fish. I wish I could have hung out with them longer, but duty called.
These guys were bursting at the seams when they pulled in this several pound carp.
A reflection of some of the fellas in a pool of water as they leave with their catch.
And I had to grab a quick shot of this dried out and decaying prehistoric looking creature. It might be common for you, but I'm from Ohio and I don't see these all the time up there, dead OR ALIVE!

These are very common fish in the Chattahooche and can be spotted in low current shallow waters. They are called alligator garr
