Default I guess thats some sort of a "hat trick"

I hit the water after work on Tuesday slapping the water for bass and caught three snake heads My first snake head on a fly rod and I nailed three

I dispatched all three and threw them up on the point where I was fishing. About an hour later I saw the crows feasting on them. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

Ta-da!

Holy Smokes! That was an outstanding outing, I've heard all these stories about how hard Snake Heads are to catch on a fly rod, congrats! What weight fly rod were you using and what pattern?

I was swinging my Orvis 5wt, with a 10lb leader and a #2 Black bead head woolly bugger with a purple tail. They can't be that hard to catch if I nailed three fishing for bass

Maybe the stars were all in alignment, I've never fished for them, but I have heard that others that try to target them have had difficult times in getting them to eat.

Yep in Florida it a very hefty fine if they catch you with a live one. The state wants them gone.

Most invasive species don't enjoy protection under such laws. Here in my part of Alaska Pike are non native / invasive and we have a terminal fishery for them, we kill every pike brought to hand. I leave mine along the lake shore and they are quickly policed up by fox and bears.

Back in June the eagles up at Wrong Branch Creek had 2 babies in the nest and we were dropping about a dozen or more pike each week just across from the nest tree for the family. It got to the point that by the end of June when I drove up the creek the eagles would come flying when they heard the boat coming. Pretty cool to see how quick they caught on to the dinner bell being the 90 horse Honda on the boat
