Default Potomac Snakehead

Our weekend on Mattawoman Cr. (Potomac tributary) was pretty much a bust as far as fish catching goes. EXTREMELY slow, miserable would be a better word. The bass just would not play, but Doc Irv did manage our best snakehead catch to date. I had it until Sunday when he managed to land this one and knock me out of the top spot. This one went 8.2 lbs, AND we got to eat it. Anyone that has not tasted this fish and it just tossing them back in the water with a slit belly is MISSING SOME GREAT TABEL FARE. It was very tasty, a mild white flesh - we were lucky and found a place willing to fry some up for us. Breaded and spiced, then pan seared it was delicious.

I won't be tossing ANY back but will need a small cooler that will hold ice for several days. Oh, one funny (interesting) thing about these beasts - after Doc had it in his kayak, we transferred it in the cooler I carry. It was in the cooler TWO hours, no water or ice, before we got to our chef's place and he put it in his refrigerator to cool the fish before fileting it - THREE more hours. When he took it out to filet, YES IT WAS STILL ALIVE - AMAZING.

They may be ugly, but they sure are tasty.
