Since 1980, Gator Bait has been a pioneer in college team coverage, building one of the largest brands to cover collegiate sports.
During that time, we have built one of the largest team publications in the country, the largest "unofficial" Florida team website and a community of more than 4,500 subscribers.
For the past 31 years we have maintained a commitment to:
1. Provide Florida fans the most up-to-date news;
2. Give users the most in-depth recruiting coverage;
3. Capture stunning images from Gator events;
4. And for the past 14 years, maintain the most vibrant Florida sports message board community (Alligator Alley) on the Internet.
Gator Bait has grown into the most innovative, diverse media brand covering Florida athletics. Gator Bait staff members also host a weekly radio show and were long-time co-hosts of a weekly local TV show.
During this time, we’ve been a member of two college sports networks, and we now continue this journey with a new partner – 247Sports. While our network partner is changing, our commitment to be the best Florida Gator team site is not.
GatorBait.net is the official Florida partner of the 247Sports network. It is important to note that Gator Bait is honoring your online membership/subscription term.
Veteran Editor Marty Cohen and Assistant Editor Mike Hodge - along with our newest teammates Franz Beard and Justin Wells - are committed to taking Gator Bait to an even higher level.
We are now in a position to give your more – more breaking news, more updates, more message board interaction and more advanced product features.
247Sports is the fastest growing team site network on the Internet. Its founders are committed to being the No. 1 network through partnerships with the best team sites, innovative technology and product development enhancements.
Check out the amazing 247Sports message board technology and our new mobile platform. And that’s only the beginning.
GatorBait.net will thrive in this new environment and provide Florida fans with the best service possible.

We need your help in preserving 15 years of the best Florida site on the Internet, which you can do by spreading the word that GatorBait.net has moved to 247Sports.
Tell your friends, scream it from the rooftops and help keep your online community at Alligator Alley together.
