A Fishing Story

Rate this post

A big h/t to beloved FellowshipOfMinds member Dave!

I went fishing this morning in the pond, but after a little while I ran out of worms. I saw a cottonmouth with a frog in his mouth. Frogs make good bass bait.
Knowing that the snake couldn’t bite me with the frog in his mouth, I grabbed him right behind his head, took the frog and put it in my bait bucket.
Now the question was how to release the snake without being bitten. So I grabbed my bottle of Jack Daniels and poured a little whiskey into his mouth.
His eyes rolled back, he went limp.  I released him into the pond without  incident and continued fishing using the frog as bait.
A little later, I felt a nudge on my foot. There was that same snake with two frogs in his mouth.
Life is good in the South.

  1. Yesterday here in Jax it rained and the temp was up around 88 deg. Because of the warm humid weather the big roaches, the ones people call water bugs or palmetto bugs, came out in droves.
    Three of them entered my home and were quite friendly. After a while I gave them names–‘Barack’, ‘Hussein’, and Obama. after an hour I noticed they were getting into things nosing around snooping into my bedroom, my cupboards, so I got out the roach killer and killed Barack and Hussein. Obama, however, tried to escape but I tracked him down and finally did him in.
    I will have to apologize to our water management bureau here in the city because I flushed them down the toilet–I thought it a fitting end for alien intruders.

    • Thank goodness we do not have those roaches in the mountains. We do have spiders that are almost the size of tarantulas–can even see their eyes looking at you.. Think I will keep the next one and name him Barry before I spray him to death.

  2. PS– I couldn’t find a cotton mouth.

  3. This is so funny!! This is why I love being born and raised in Dixie. Hardly ever went fishing on in-law’s Natchez Trace farm that we did not see a cottonmouth. Wish I could give some Jack Daniels to some of the rattlesnakes we have seen in our yard, get them drunk, and shoot them!!

  4. DW, I wouldn’t waste JD on the snakes. I would give ’em the rot gut. LOL.
