Thanks to Darrell Breed for sending me a link to a story about a world record snakehead that was recently caught in a tributary of the Potomac River. As you probably know, snakehead are an invasive species that wreak havoc on natural fish populations. But apparently, they fight well, taste good, and are downright ugly which makes them cool to catch in a beastly way--sort of an anti-trout, if you will.
The pending world record snakehead was 4 feet long and weighed 18 pounds. I can't beat the weight, but I think I can outdo the length with a snakehead of my own. Only this one isn't a fish, and it has the rest of the body attached. In the pic below, you can see it went a good five to six feet long. Of course, it was released unharmed.
