Heard another fisherman say it this morning and man was it true! Must have been at least 50 water snakes that I saw this morning. Great fishing though! Went this morning with 4 large bass 14+inches, 1 huge catfish (over 24in) and a couple of small crappie and blue gill, all on my gulp minnows that I use primarilyb for Bass. I even hooked a brown water snake before he wriggled off, was glad I didn't have to unhook him! If your heading there this week, keep your eyes open!
