Dalton's big catch @ Craig Creek. While there on Sunday, we saw so many water snakes, it was crazy. We've seen one or two since we've been going there but they were very active for some reason this past Sunday. Then heading home, Christian, our oldest boy said that his friend told him that Craig Creek is known for having a lot of water snakes. Knowing that we don't have Water Mocassins here, the water snakes don't really bother me like they did in Georgia and Missouri, where we DID have Water Mocs. These little water snakes here are not poisonous, but they did seem aggressive. When Nick dangled his bait right in front of one of the snakes it jumped so quick and bit onto his little fish bait and wouldn't let go. There was another snake swimming in the water and some crazy guys tried to catch him by grabbing onto his tail and that thing took off at double speed. They move quick! Although as much as I don't like snakes, I don't freak out as much anymore when I see them since I am a little more at rest knowing they are just harmless water snakes!
