Fishing Trip With Jack

An un-frog-etable story



I finally got around to going fishing this morning, but after a while
I ran out of worms. Then I saw a cottonmouth with a frog in his mouth,
and frogs are good bass bait.
Cottonmouth snake frog bait for fishing

Knowing the snake couldn’t bite me with the frog in his mouth,
I grabbed him right behind the head, took the frog and put it
in my bait bucket.

Now the dilemma was how to release the snake without getting bitten.

I grabbed my bottle of Jack Daniels and poured a
little whiskey in its mouth.


His eyes rolled back, he went limp, I released him into the lake
without incident, and carried on my fishing with the frog.

A little later I felt a nudge on my foot.
There was that same snake with two frogs in his mouth.
Life is good in the South.
