Got up about 6:30 and headed out to the lake. Caught a handfull of bluegills and a couple 8 or 9 inch spotted bass, and a nice fish of some sort threw my spinner as I tried to set the hook on him, so I had a good time. Driving back up the hill from the picnic area where I'd been fishing I spotted a snake streatch out across the road and thought it was a road kill. No one was around so I stopped, looked, and it was just stretched out pretty as you please warming itself on the road, just beggin' to get run over! It was about a 3 foot gopher snake, so I scooped him up and brought him home. I've caught a lot of these growing up and I was pretty surprised that he didn't even TRY to bite me! Most of them I've come across have had pretty nasty dispositions! Figured he must still be cold, but I drove home with him in one hand and although he tried real hard to slither into the dash or under the seat he STILL never made an attempt to bite! Any of you that like snakes ever found a gopher snake that wasn't strike happy like this?!
