    Did you ever have a snake chase or hit your bait?

  • #2
    A fishing buddy and I were fishing Lake Erie overnight for Walleye. I was casting a gray/silver Rapala about 50yds off Rattlesnake Island. After a few casts, a rattlesnake came right after it. Luckily i was able to reel faster than he could swim so he did not get it.
    True story.

      Not on lures, but have caught several on trot lines. The snakes were usually drowned.

        No snakes but I have caught several aligators on rubber worms while bass fishing.

          They have rattlesnakes on Lake Erie?

          I once had one try to eat a sunfish off my stringer. No idea what he would have done once he realized his free meal came with strings attached.

              No snakes but I caught snapper turtles with a nightcrawler or a shiner on my fishing hook.

                I have found water moccasins and water snakes on stringers that I had bream on and left in the pond overnight. I have also had snapping turtles eat the bellies out of bass on a stringer. A few times I have had frogs take flies or other small lures.
