Catching fish is typically pretty straightforward. You cast a line, hook a fish and reel a fish in. But sometimes that fish might have a surprise that comes up with it.

That was the case for Chipper Burman when he caught a catfish recently. The 10-year-old Texan

The 10-year-old Texan was fishing by himself at a private family pond when he landed a catfish, just like any other time. Except, this time it wasn’t just a catfish he reeled in because it had a guest – a diamondback¬†water snake that had locked its jaws around the head of the fish and wouldn’t let go.

Though it looks similar to another diamondback¬†snake that’s known to be deadly, the snake was non-venomous so Burman wasn’t in any danger.
