Today started the hunt of the mighty Florida Snakehead for the next two days. Richard from Orlando, Florida has traveled around the world fishing for Snakehead and has the stories to prove it. When he heard that they were in South Florida…well let’s say he was one of the few that got excited about the news. But for me it’s been a while since I have had someone so excited to fish, and for Snakeheads of all things.
SO…he headed right down just to fish for the bullseye snakeheads in South Florida, because of the heat index we only fished short days. Richard has been to Asia among other places, but never fished all day with topwater for the Snakehead, so this was a treat.
The time on the water was productive, we managed to get several fish with a few nicer ones like the one above weighed over seven (7) pounds. All of our fish where caught on topwater, so it was pretty cool to see the massive explosions not counting the fact that they fight really well.
All the fish that were caught, were destroy as by State Law reguirments. So if you decide to make your way down to South Florida and want to get in some crazy topwater Snakehead fishing action, know that it is State law that we cannot release this species.
Had a great time with Richard and looking forward to seeing him again.
