I finally got around to going fishing this Thursday morning but after a while I ran out of worms.

Then I saw a cottonmouth with a frog in his mouth, and frogs are good bass bait.
Knowing the snake couldn't bite me with the frog in his mouth, I grabbed him right behind the head, took the frog and
put it in my bait bucket.

Now the dilemma was how to release the snake without getting bitten.
I grabbed my bottle of Jack Daniels and poured a little whiskey in its mouth. His eyes rolled back, he went limp, I
released him into the lake without incident, and carried on my fishing with the frog.

A little later I felt a nudge on my foot.
There was that same snake with two frogs in his mouth.

Fishing report for the day Fish 0 Campfishitus out 3 DZ worms and 22 FROGs Plus made friends with Snake! Wonder what he is doing next weekend. Always NICE to have bait delivered while fishing!

Sorry No pictures. Maybe next weekend when I get bait delivered.

That snake is better trained retrieving than my dog
