Mad Island. I can't wait even though it's going to be hot and the bait is really going to stink

Even though I have been on about 20 TPWD gator hunts I have never gator hunted mad island, but I have hunted waterfowl there and a postcard draw quail hunt. On the quail hunt I think I counted over a dozen gators visible in one of the ponds. I kept my dog out of the water for sure. It should be a great hunt. If your into fishing and have the extra time, you could check out is the Oyster Lake Fishing Hole/Park. It is around 15 miles from the entrance to Mad Island. It should come up on google maps. It is at the end of the road at nowhere and nothing there but a long stretch of bank that is great for bank fishing. Would be a great kayak fishing access area as well.

I fish a lot in that area and all those marshes back there. The gators back there are very thick, and there is some absolute dinosaurs back there. I have an 18' skiff and swear I saw one as big as my boat.

How do you hunt them on public land ? Do they allow you to set baits overnight?
