Default 50ft hole / Pensacola Bay

My Brother and I made a trip to a spot we like for Shark fishing. We put in Navy Point around 6:00pm and where heading to the Mass to try and catch some bait. On our way out of the pass, we saw about a 4 foot snake, and sure enough when we got close, we saw that it was a rattle snake. He was heading out to sea. I think we made it mad when we were trying to take pictures, because it coiled into strike position and also made a run for the boat...Pretty Cool. Anyway, we could not make it out, seas were to rough for my boat so we headed in for the 50 ft hole in the bay. We anchored, put out the chum and let down slabs of bonito that we had caught on a previous trip. We got 3 hard hits and to our surprise pulled up 3 nice red snapper.Had a fun trip. Enjoy the pictures.

Rattle snake we saw outside the pass heading to sea.



Rattle Snake Coiled to strike...sorry for blurry picture

There are rattlesnakes all over Ft. Pickens. A guy I know was fined $500 dollars for killing one next to his tent when his family was camping.

"Well, officer, ya see I was out in the Gulf in my kayak fishing and minding my own business when I was attacked by a diamondback so I clubbed it to death with my lip grabber!!" ...................... "Honest!!"

"No sir, I was NOT drinking!!"

"No sir, I haven't done drugs since Vietnam!"

"You want me to balance on one foot and count backwards from 5,000 in Spanish???" ........... "Uh, yeah, ............ RIIIIIIIIIGHT!"

............................ "Who ARE you ................. really????"

(To borrow a very old line from a Bill Cosby routine way back in the day.If ya remember, "Zuuba, zuuba, ................... NOAH!", you'll know what I am talking about.)
