I was pulling the boat yesterday and saw a northern water snake about four feet long sitting in the shallows at the ramp. I tried hard to catch him for almost 10 minutes so I could take him home and scare my wife. He got away everytime and even stopped to eat a baby blue gill in front of me (probably laughing at me). I'd already put my wallet in my pocket of I'd have showed him who was boss!

I haven't tried to catch a snake in the water in many years, it was fun and would have made a good uTube.

Ran into a few Puff Adders and thought they were rattle snakes...Scared the bee Jesus ought of me. The only thing missing was the rattle of the tail.
All North American poisonous snakes (except the coral snake) have arrowhead shaped heads. That's the most reliable way to identify one that might hurt you. I grew up around em and even had a pet rattler when I was a teenager. Snakes are cool except moccasins. They're mean as snake **** and should be shot on sight!
