Sometimes Man is Not the Alpha Fisherman

 One of the great things about fishing is the amazing things you get to see. Most of us have stories of seeing fish and sharks feeding close by, but how about a monster Salt Water Croc?

North Queenslanders Bob and Timothy Roberts, saw just that when they stopped for lunch on the Jardine River recent. A massive Cape York Salt Water Crocodile  estimated to be between 4.5m and 5m long also tucked in to his lunch - a tasty snack of sea turtle.

“The croc had the turtle from the rear flippers and was throwing it around, getting as much meat as it could,” Mr Roberts told reporters.
Experts say that its not uncommon for crocs to take a turtle, allthough the shell can be a challenge.
