Hello everyone, I live between Baltimore and Washington DC so the Potomac, Patuxent, and other snakehead infested waters are readily available to me. I live very close to where the first northern snakeheads were found in the US and ever since then I wanted to catch one. I have tied up a large articulated beast for my 9 weight and also some deer hair poppers, but was thinking that large bass flies and poppers should work fine. Any opinions or tips for my adventure? PS I will post the fly when I get the chance. Thanks in advance.

Re: Snakeheads
"infested waters"... more like opportunistic waters... would love to fish for a snakehead!

Anything I've seen about snakeheads... they will take just about anything that's put in front of their face... kinda like our bowfin here

Re: Snakeheads
They are extremely difficult to convice to eat a fly, so good luck with them.

Re: Snakeheads
Got one in a canal in Miami while fishing for Peacock Bass. Hit a Clouser like a
freight train!Our guide says he gets them when targeting other things with Clousers but when he targets Snakeheads he uses a frog pattern.
