A guy went fishing one morning but after a short time he ran out of bait

Then he saw a huge black cotton mouth snake with a frog in his mouth.. Frogs are good musky bait.

Knowing the snake couldn't bite him with the frog in his mouth

He grabbed him right behind the head, took the frog, and put it in his bait bucket.

Now the problem was how to release the snake without getting bitten.

So, he grabbed a bottle of Jack Daniels and poured a little whiskey in its mouth.

His eyes rolled back, he went limp.

Then he released him into the lake without incident and carried on fishing using the frog.

A little later, he felt a nudge on his foot.

It was that damn snake, with two more frogs.
