I went fishing on Lake Wylie and was fishing off of Copperhead Island (thats what its called) and it was about 10 PM. All of a sudden my buddy looked down and there was a water moccasin about 1 or 2 feet in front of us. Scared me half to death. We jumped up and started to try to get rid of him and finally hit him in the head with a rock and he took off. The same thing has happened the past two nights except on the first night it was at Mountain Island Lake. Anybody have any advice on how to keep those snakes as far away as possible? Thanks.
