  • Snake

    My wife and 2 kids go out for some family time on the water tonight. Before surfing we decided to let the kids swim. My wife and kids were in the water while I was in the boat getting it situated. I walk to the stern and notice a snake is trying to get up on the platform and this is a big snake. I canít believe this is happening. I immediately grab the closet thing I can use to get the snake off the platform (which is one of the pump water guns) while I tell my wife and kids to get far away from me. They start to panic. I was able to get the snake off the platform and it immediately dove under water. At this point I pull my kids out of the water from the bow along with my wife. We have had a lot of rain and Lake Lanier is almost 4í above full pool. I think this is why this happened. Either way, the whole moment was surreal. I might carry a baseball bat moving forward. It all happened so quick I didnít have time to think. I just wanted my wife and kids as far away as possible. We ended up having a great evening but a lasting memory.

    My wifes worst nightmare.

    I was talking to someone the other day and they told a story about a trip to Lake Shasta. He said they were on a beached houseboat and watched a rattlesnake make its way up one of the bow lines, get on the boat and hide inside a boat cover that was bundled up on the deck.

      Wow that is exciting for sure, especial when he went underwater and you lost sight of him!

        Moving forward I will definitely be looking for unwanted guests when I get on my boat. AND yes. When it went under water.... that was not expected. Something I would rather not think about when hanging out in the water.

                I don't like spiders and snakes ... and there a plenty here in Florida. At least the gators don't bother you.

                    He actually had a pretty good run going there for a bit until he fell out of the wake! Lol

                      That was one of my Anti surf snakes. I trained a bunch of them over the winter to try and stop surfing in the ski cove. If you stay in the main channel they won't bother you.
