Easy to say when your standing on 30 inches of ice Dan.
Actually, Dan is right on this and when I Lived in Florida, I never gave it a second thought when wading. It's usually the rattlers that are the problem and their on the land mostly. I also have never heard of anyone getting snake bit in the water, and I know a few that got hit on land, myself included.
