I didnt get a chance for a photo, happened quick..
Friday 6:00 pm corner of my dock had the biggest Cotton mouth I've seen in at least 30 yrs. 3-1/2 footer big around as a beer can, the freaking head was thick as pack of cigarettes.. this thing was huge..

Made a pellet gun shot to that head, from 15ft it bucked up keeled over the edge and slide lifeless into the water...
So watch out on hanging up on docks or limbs... Bass fishing public announcement... grin

Cotton mouth's are evil snakes and vicious. Had one at Fork try to get in the boat with me once.

Yeppers, know that feeling and it ain't good! Had that happen on EM lake 3 times year before last.
Mean and angry critters...IMO (for the snake lovers here)
God Bless (us all)

A lot of people confuse water snakes with cottonmouths. But Billy's description, short and thick, is right on for a cottonmouth. A 3.5 footer is a monster.
I'm an animal lover, but not these guys. Good job Red.

Thanks for the heads up Billy. The only good one is a dead one IMO.

A snake is a snake 6 inches or 6 feet doesn't matter kill em all. No way I would have shot it with a pellet gun. This calls for a P320
Nice going Billy

Better start getting and idea of how much to price your stuff.. if you're on the water very much, it's gonna happen.
One of the funniest things I've witnessed in person was a big old boy close to 300 lbs fishing the rear seat, he notice a 5 foot black diamond water snake had slithered up around his seat pedistal... He screamed like a little girl ran to the front and crawl on top of the skinny 140lb guy on the troling motor.. That was next to the bridge on 2966 at coffee creek.. I laughed till I hurt...
I've had many a snake try to get in the boat, the more remote, the more the odds.
