Monster Potomac River Snake Head-

Recommended Posts

A guy from another tournament caught a 11 lb. snake head. It was pretty neat to see. Here is the pic, and any responses are welcomed. A few guys in our tournament said that they caught a few this weekend to. I checked to make sure it was not a bow fin, and it wasn't. Enjoy the pic.

Here's a cool pic...

Fished Broad Creek yesterday, and caught 4 keepers.  Norther point down to the first docks, and out about 30-50 yards.  Not monsters, but did well.  Should have stayed there for the duration, I know we might have gotten the 5th keeper.  It was nice to see the planes go over all day.  What a beautiful fishery.  Fished near Mt. Vernon as well, that is some nice water and weeds just below the retaining walls.  Thanks for sharing your waters this weekend...it's a great place to fish!

Since they are so many of them now don't think you have to report them anymore, just do not release them.

Was reported, and the fish/game official came, and then gave it to a local gentleman, who in turn ate it...from what he said he was going to do!!!! Here's another pic....check out the teeth on this thing!!!!!

There was a whole show on them on National Geography the other day. They seem like some angry fish. They put one in a Styrofoam container on ice for 24 hours and came back the next day and put it in water and it swam like nothing was different

I've never tried 'em but I hear they're actually pretty tasty.

Tastes like chicken :D

Very interesting, and to see what they do to a Bass is Nasty!

Not Happy to see them at all, just interesting, since I have never seen one, let alone this big.  That's why I took the pictures.  You never know if you'll ever see anything like that again.  If one were to get on my line...it would be lights out...after I figured out how/what to use for the "last rights".

The potomac was awesome last weekend, and I am sure it is good this weekend too....enjoy, it's a very nice fishery!

Fought more like a pike.....strong at the beginning then petered out and was just along for the ride.  I wasn't overly impressed.
