    caught a 4.5 lbs channel on some sonnys a bit ago out of the local lake that had a 1 foot section of a water snake in its belly.It was big enough around to be a 2 to 3 foot snake at one time.
    I always check the gut of cat,channel or flat head if i feel anything in it.Always want to see what they been eating.
    Anybody else ever find any snakes in the bellys of cats?First time for me.:eek:oooh:

    That would be an exciting experience Rollo, I have never witnessed this, but have heard plety of stories about it. It is kind of interesting that a fish would eat a snake. I wonder if that goes down head first?

    Maybe they do eat them head first?The part of the snake that wasnt digested yet was the tail.
