    Default Snakeheads have been few and far between but picked up one today......

    Fished Potomac Creek this afternoon and it was slow....did manage to corral this 11lb 10 oz snake along with a 2lb 14oz largemouth. The snakehead hit a white chatterbait and the bass inhaled a large leopard colored frog....both fish caught on the outgoing tide....hope everyone got a chance to get out on the water!!!Name:  11 lb 10 oz snake from potomac creek.JPG

    I fished the front end of the outgoing in the way back of the creek there yesterday. Water was high enough to get quite a ways back with no problem. We fished from the back all the way out to the no wake zone... Fished from sunrise until about 12 until we left it. Couldn't say we didn't try. The river has fished tough this year... Venturing towards the belief that there are less fish around.

    sometimes i get to thinking that same thought....maybe its just a late season but seems like not as many snakeheads as previous seasons....probably just an optical illusion !! when i cut open this snakehead i saw that some type of fish was in its stomach....i found a 6 3/4 inch catfish!!! and he still crushed that chatterbait!!! must have been uncomfortable as the catfish's spike fin (thats what i call em anyway) was straight out...here is a picName:  102_1445.JPG

    Wow. Catfish probably hang out in the same part of the water as snakeads.
