So a buddy and I were fishing in the first cove on the west side from the dam on Cedar Creek yesterday and we were flipping the brush just working along the bank. Suddenly my buddy points out a 4 ft snake swimming out of the brush towards us. I take a look thinking it will just pass on by but nope. Chased us a good 100 yards out of the cove. I got on my trolling motor and had to put on highest speed to out run it! I have never seen a snake get that aggressive before. Must have been protecting a nest or something.
I had one do the same thing on the n end of RH. I saw it coming 75ft away, straight towards the boat. I shot at it with a pistol but didn't hit it, but it blew it out of the water and that didn't phase it any, we had to leave.
