this past teal season, i spooked a 6' gator before daybreak by hitting him with my pirogue. the water was shallow and he thrashed about and actually bit the front of my pirogue. he was aggressive but i really unknowingly invaded his space. besides putting some water and mud in my pirogue, he was really not a threat to me. however, as greenhead1 stated, the larger ones sometimes will attack you.
