    I never knew that a Rattlesnake could swim. I always thought that they were just on land creatures. I will say this, I would not have stayed around trying to smack that snake with a Rod.. My Boat would have been long gone...lol

    Cool video anyways, thanks for sharing..

    I kept cringing thinking sooner or later some sh&& was gonna hit the fan and that snake was gonna get a bit more lively.

    Yes they swim. When they come out of the water the rattles don't work anymore either! That dude wanted out of the water bad enough to try to get in the boat with those fellows.

    Thanks for sharing Dean. I've only seen that one other time. A few years back when the rattlers were migrating at Wolf Lake I saw some swim a small creek. The snakes come out of pine hills and travel toward the Mississippi. The state forestry even closes some roads so they want be disturbed.

    Great video thanks for sharing. I think I would have just moved on and let the rattler be.

    Looks like lunch, a new belt, and a hat pin. In that order too. Beats bass fishing.
