It is a diamondback water snake eating that bullhead. I read the article somewhere. Can't remember where.
Brown Water Snake or Nerodia taxispilota;
Brown Water Snakes are easy to distinguish from the other species of water snakes. They have three rows of dark blotches running the length of their bodies -- a row on top and a row on each side. Very young Brown Water Snakes are identical in pattern to mature Brown Water Snakes. However, when the snake reaches old-age, the pattern fades.
i dont know my snakes, i just stay clear of them, sorry. the tail on the fish looks more like a channel to me with the pointy fin tips.
I had two of them on the first two hooks of my trotline this weekend.
Looks like it would make a good pair of boots.
I was fishing at Caverun Lake in Ky with a bluegill and actually caught a snake that looked like that on the bottom
it looks like the elusive half snake half fish snake to me lol

The Next Time A Snake Is On Ur Trotline...cut About Four Inches Down From His Head And Leave The Rest On. Snake Is A Common Diet Of Flatheads And Other Cats...
It looks like a hungary snake to me, LOL.
Thanks alot I don't know many snakes and didn't figure it to be poisinous. I found the picture on the web and wonder about it.
That looks like a soon to be dead snake. The intake part of that meal is the easy part, the exhaust part of that meal is going to hurt like the dickens. If that doesn't kill the snake the snake will sure wish it was dead about half way through it. lol :waaaht:
Yeah it does! lol
Cottonmouth?? :confused2: I pulled up a snake on my stringer one time that had tried to swallow one of the smaller channels. He was a good sized snake, and yes he suprised me being on there.
In my life time I have seen 2 dead and 1 live snake with catfish spines sticking out of their sides.We use to find snakes regularly in our "Live Cars" for keeping Catfish.They would go through the 2" mesh wire,swallow a Catfish and then could not get back out due to the "bulge" in their belly.Mostly water snakes with a occasional Cotton Mouth.The ones with scars and markings that you could identify would be back in a week or two if you released them.Most ended up drowning trying to go back through the wire.Most seem to eat Catfish regularly with no ill affects as long as they swallow them head first.I think that they feed on each other as the opportunity arises.peewee-williams
