I went fishing this morning but quickly ran out of worms. Then I saw an Eastern
Diamondback rattler with a frog in his mouth. Frogs are good bass bait.
The snake couldn't bite me with the frog in his mouth I grabbed him behind the head, took the frog, and put it in my bait bucket. Then I needed to release the snake without getting bit.
I unscrewed my Knob Creek bottle and poured a little whiskey in its mouth. The snake’s eyes rolled back and he went limp. I released him under a bush a few paces away and continued fishing.
A little later, something nudged my foot. There was the snake with another frog in his mouth. Life is good in the Adirondacks.
