i should add that it's doubtful they're poisonous as i managed to free the said "towed" fish and it's still kicking.

I would just use a stick,broomhandle...and take them out of the water on the stick, lower them into a cloth bag of some kind, or a bucket, container, anything. Take them out to a location that would be suitable for the type of snake, and release them.=(Although I don't know what area you live in, so you may have to modify that plan a little).

You could use one those long poles with the nets on the end and scoop it up. If it were my pond though I would be bringing in more goldfish for my snakes to eat!

easy enough to catch, and net with a fine screen and deep hold will work. A pond or river area with a food supply and everyone wins. Good luck

tried catching them. the manmade small pond has tons of rocks for them to hide and they are quick. i've set up a minnow trap with some baited goldfish. hope it works. please respond with anymore suggestions. thanks

if you do not have that many goldfish I would remove them to a temp home for their health. Have you tried using a casting net?? Like if you were trying to catch shad for fishing?? Sorry If I am not clear.
