Bank Fishing with SNAKES!

I’m bank fishing for bass at a muddy water lake. It’s a warm sunny day in winter and it’s perfect for snakes. Snakes love to sun on warm days around rocky banks. A big water snake surprised the hell out of me! This was a big diamond back water snake. I see this species a lot when bass fishing in Texas. They are not venomous, but they are pretty aggressive and they don’t make fishing around the bank any easier. Just like bass, the snakes are cold blooded so they will come out on warm days and bask in the sun to warm their blood us to digest food faster and make it easier to chase prey. Largemouth bass are the same way. They will come into shallow water in lakes and ponds on these warm sunny days to take advantage of the few degree temperature difference. You can catch some big bass in really shallow water when you get special days like this in the winter. Unfortunately for me today, all I kept running into was snakes, instead of bass. I fished for bass around the bank for a few hours and called it quits after not getting any bites.
