>>Got some folks insisting it's a hognose snake... thoughts?

Well, this is one of those situations where I can certainly see where the pattern looks a lot like a hog, and having the head stretched out by that fish adds to the similarity, but if they just took a few minutes to look up a few pictures of each, there's no question which it is.

That being said, I've seen enough pictures of water snakes labeled as cottonmouths and hog's and water snakes labeled as copperheads that I wouldn't be surprised if they've seen pictures of a northern water snake on an "official" looking web site labeled as a hog.
