CRICKY, look what I found swimming a couple hundred yards off shore today in Wahweap Bay. I had just landed at 2.5 lb bucketmouth and was heading off to a new spot when I spotted this guy. He was not going in the right direction either. I tried to get him to turn around but snakes don't herd well. Anyway I thought, WWSID,What would Steve Irwin do. But I wasn't about to grab it by the tail so I did the next best thing. I took it into about 2 feet of water, said, Nice meeting you, and cast him to the bank. He was a little cold but he should have warmed back up fairly quickly, it was 103 here today and I can't wait for my headache to go away.
