    I've seen this in pictures and read online about this. I've even seen snakes in water in little creeks, but NEVER in saltwater! This Diamond back is about 2'-3' and tried to head towards either my or Dans classic when we got to close. It was in Pine Island Sound heading towards mainland!!!!

    Pretty cool. What I always found amazing was how high they float in the water. :-?

    iMacattack busy, too busy

    floats like a cork. Looks tippy though.

    You know, if we gave him a tow rope to hang onto
    with his mouth, and took the boat up to about 20 mph,
    That'd be a snake on a plane!

    Sorry, couldn't resist, and if we did it we could check
    his running angle and draft too!

    Hahahahahha, I wonder if I can get that shallow by covering the bottom of my hull in snake skin? ;D

    I wanna film you catching the snake with a skin big enough to cover your boat!  ;)

    There's a mental image: Diamondback camo!

    We've all missed an obvious bonus to the situation.
    What is the IGFA record for eastern diamondback on fly?
    What would you throw, a grey mouse fly? Chatreuse frog fly?
    Brown Wooly booger? And after you got it to the boat, who's gonna
    volunteer to get the hook out? Catch and release could become a
    whole new thrill! As to the cleanin' and eatin', snake ain't half bad.
    Makes a good chili or sloppy joe.
    And with enough skins we could epoxy 'em to Tom's hull.
