Snakehead Hunt - Coming soon


I have made a decision to utilize all of this travel that I do for work and start bringing some fishing gear with me where ever I go. I am going to be in D.C. int he middle of March so I started researching some fishing options.

That's when I discovered the huge population of snakehead that live in the Potomac and it's tributaries. Being something that isn't too prevalent up here yet, I can't resist the challenge.

My plan is to hit Dogue Creek where it i said that they are in the thousands. Lure choices are going to be the RC wake bait, Mann's minus 1, and some senkos.

Will post results!! I may even throw a bottom line out for some blue cats that are thriving in the same area.

  4. I'm always on the hunt for unusual opportunities, never thought of a snakehead as a reality though. Good luck in your endeavor.

  5. I saw the Snakehead episode in River Monsters, and he had good luck in FL using a frog topwater lure. I have this same desire to get one (or more) of those invasive suckers.

    Thanks Salty...

    I saw that episode as well. That actually got me curious about them and started my search. I am going back to DC next week and am going to try to find some time to fish for them. The water should be warm enough for them to start getting active!
