He says he could barely fit it in his cooler.

He could barely fit it there too.

farking snakeheads are going to ruin this country, you mark my words.  We should just round them all up and kill them.  A final solution, if you will, to our snakehead problem.

Fish markets have become too confusing and inefficient.  One edible species will be an improvement.

Give the fools their tartar sauce.

If you can't fit a 3' fish in your beer cooler, you're no fisherman.

I saw a guy a few week ago catch a cobia that was too large for his cooler, so he cut it in half while he was still fishing in the bay.  When he got to the boat ramp, a random catch check by DNR found the fish had been illegally cut/cleaned and he got a $500 fine and fish was confiscated.

Frankenfish live in rivers. Frankenfish don't live in lakes or streams. I like frakenfish.

Actually they are already "kill on site, do not release" everywhere.  They are starting to be used at restaurants, which is what we really need to happen.  We need everyone to develop a taste for them then the problem will take care of itself.

Had a snake head in the early 90's in my aquarium. When he got to about 6 inches my tilapia buttikoferi killed him. The buttikoferi then started killing everything else in the tank. They are the assholes of the fish world.

When they run out of food, a snakehead can just walk to another nearby waterway.

The hell???

Yup.  It's easiest to think of them as smallish muskie.  I live in Maryland, and have never seen or caught one, but I'm up for it.  Pike are the bomb.

I guess there can be some logic to this.  If you are truly going to eat it, you might as well make it use vinegar first.

Which explains why he was fishing on Aquia Creek and caught it in the Potomac.

At first, I read that as "buttkikoferi" and thought you were kidding.

Pike and pickerel have a distinct sweetish flavor to their meat. In my opinion they taste much better than bass. The tricky thing is learning how to clean them right. They have a set of "Y" shaped bones that you will get a mouth full of if you try to clean them like a bass. I never cleaned a snake head, so I don't know if they have something similar.

Indeed, I will never forget one time in the Yukon terr. where a german angler tourist reeled in a monster pike that filled up 15+ starving people.  The fish was so damn ugly but the meat was heaven sent.

Make sure you cook those things well-done, they carry about every parasite a fish can pick up.

There have been recent events in Virginia and Maryland where they invited folks to create Snakehead fish dishes.  Seems plausible, but it's a long haul.

the current accepted theory of how they got here was by Asian people releasing them into the local canals. They are apparently quite sought after in their native land

While I get your logic, that is the theory behind why they 'accidently' were introduced to US water.

They might go away because they are considered edible by the snakehead though :(

It's about the only good thing about them.  Like pike, snakehead are big, aggressive predators.  They're going to carve some kind of swath through the areas that they move into.  It's only a question of degree.  I'm trying to look at the upside, which is they are a solid gamefish, and my vietnamese friend tells me that they go well with lemongrass and butter.

Go on. Let the fools have their tar-tar sauce.

I take it that they don't spend too much time out of water although capable of crawling on mud. It would be neat to just snare one without equipment on land.
