Sloan Tuttle gave his dad, Steve, a surprise birthday fishing trip with me today. However, it was no real surprise to me that the wind blew hard again. Heavy winds are manageable this time of year when they're from an easterly direction, but a southwest wind will chop up almost the entire bay especially when it's humping at 20 plus mph.

The trout bite was next to impossible where we had to fish so we turned to our beloved redfish for a bailout plan. It kind of worked, but even the reds were skittish. We hooked 7 on topwaters, but only landed four of them from 21 to 24.5 inches.

On the way out of our last spot I noticed a snake swimming across the surface. Upon closer examination it turned out to be a pretty good sized rattlesnake. We took a few pictures until it got too close for comfort. It wanted in my boat really bad. By 1:30 we had had enough wind and muddy water so we headed for the ramp. It's always fun fishing with Steve and Sloan.

Capt. Steve
