Oh yes, everything IS bigger in Texas.
That certainly includes one inhabitant of Lake Conroe, located near Montgomery. Home to a fair number of houseboats, there also seems to be at least one outsized watercraft that smacks of the movie Jurrassic Park.
Internet Web rings began circulating earlier today about a monsterous reptile that was discovered in dramatic fashion. Just days after area residents began hearing the loud bellowing noises from the nearby waterway, Game wardens were called in. Warden Joe Goff is pictured here as he walks past the alligator in question. The reptile measured a lengthy 23-feet and 1 inch.
Comments from the local blogosphere raise some doubts as to the authenticity of the story. You decide.
In the meantime, don't let this oddity curb your plans to spend vacation time on Conroe.
Along with a modest fleet of houseboats, the lake has some excellent facilities for a fun stay on the water.
For one, the April Plaza Marina offers bass fishermen and power boaters of all stripes on the water fuel, ice, picnic supplies, a three-lane boat ramp, fishing tackle, lake maps, live bait, licenses, boat lifts, marine accessories, and plenty of cold drinks.
