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 thought that was the reason we are required to carry an oar onboard. One solid whack with a wooden oar and you won't have to worry about anything but finding new shorts.

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.

Thats why I carry mice in a container. Anytime I see a snake I fling one in its direction. Keeps up busy for a while and will be to full to chase me off.

I'm telling yall that snake was about ready to climb on board with us! I was ready to jump on my buddies shoulders if he came any closer. A 410 would have came in handy

Was fishing in a cove yesterday at Fork and a family in a pontoon boat said the same thing happened. One was trying to get in the boat with them. I carry a 410 Snake Charmer in the boat.

Never understood the thing swimming over a lake to find more dry land, isn't there plenty where they came from? Dumb critters...
