    Snakehead catching is bigtime in the Southeast of Penn's Woods.

    Anglers are beginning to target the Snakehead like we fish for the elusive PA Walleye. Except, they're actually "catching" the fish they seek.😁

    Soooo why wouldn't the PFBC want the Snakehead listed as a "boogeyman fish"? Especially a fish that is palatable and will create more competition with their coveted, pellethead program.

    Just think, in a few short years, a "Snakehead Stamp"......... priceless.

    I love invasives.  I figure if you are in favor of polluting local waters with pelletheads (only native in the weakest sense) you can't much complain about a hard fighting, fast breeding tasty aquarium fish eating your lures.  
     
    There is quite a fishery in the West Palm FL area.  Though that whole lionfish debacle is a different story.
