    I'd love to tangle with a snakehead one of these days. It's on the bucket list. Great fish for sure!

    Definitely worth scratching this fish off the list at some point. I have caught a few smaller 5lbs and less before, but this thing was a absolute monster. The topwater blowups from snakeheads is awesome to experience. Just be prepared to miss a bunch...seems like as aggressive as they are, there aim sucks.
