I was riding the jet-ski in the Intracoastal Waterway today in Sargent, TX. Saw this snake and tried to shoot a video of it. Sorry for the [censored] and short vid. Very beautiful bronze color. [img]http://texasfishingforum.com/forums/pics/usergals/2015/05/full-65836-61643-image.jpg[/



Any help with ID is appreciated.

Well the whole body appears to be floating which could mean cottonmouth. Lots of them around there too. Hard to say with the picture.

Maybe they all float in saltwater though?

My guess is a diamondback watersnake.

Not a cottonmouth. More than likely a diamond back water snake

Yup, it's some kind of innocuous water snake.

White underside of head and body shape as well as swimming style tell me its a rat snake, most likely a Texas rat snake.

Cotton mouths are never skinny they are gonna be very fat most of the time
