Great video!

I've been intrigued by snakehead for some time...maybe I'll get out this summer and give it a try. Are top waters the most effective method for catching them?

It all depends on how much cover you are fishing in . If the cover is like in the video subsurface flies will collect to much weeds to fish them properly . With that being said they are a great topwater fish because they are always in shallow water, since they breath air and their eyes are positioned in a way that they are always looking above them . Best time in my area for streamers is late spring and early summer since the weed growth is still low.

I know nothing much at all about weedless. I never gave it a thought til this past summer when I found a nice warm water pond w/in 1/8 mile of my house. It's all Greek to me, to be honest w/ you.

Say what? They breathe air?

Rather than be lazy (as is my tendency), I did a little research and learned about how snakeheads do indeed have the ability to breathe air, but lacking a diaphragm they need to submerge to facilitate oxygen exchange. Really interesting stuff.

This is from a Virginia Tech fact sheet on Northern Snakeheads:

Northern snakeheads do breathe air. Unlike many other air-breathing fishes, they have a series of spaces in the rear portion of their head called the suprabranchial chamber. These spaces are filled with folded tissues that have a high surface area, and allow oxygen exchange to occur directly between air and their blood. Unlike humans, they lack a diaphragm, and use water to exchange old air with fresh air each time they take a breath. Thus, their ability to breathe air when out of the water is limited. Northern snakeheads could survive out of the water for several days if they are kept moist, but would desiccate and perish in minutes if placed on dry land in direct sunlight. Northern snakeheads also have gills, and breathe water like any other fish. They breathe air to supplement their demand for oxygen, and appear to breathe air far more frequently when they are actively swimming, much like a runner gasps for breath compared to someone who is sitting and reading.

I know the spot it's a very well known snakehead farm. I typically don't watch fishing videos but I enjoyed it. Thanks.

On the big snakehead it looked for a second like you almost forgot and went to stick your thumb in it’s mouth. I live on Woodbury creek where I catch some lovely channel cats but I’m told it’s prime snakehead water. The Heinz refuge is a pretty beaten up area.

It’s the sage largemouth rod 330 grains it’s considered a fast action rod . https://www.sageflyfish.com/product/specialty/bass-ii#!

JP I have caught myself a few times attempting to lip the fish but luckily for me they like to keep their mouths closed

Fred,
What weight rod and leader do you use? Also when would you start fishing for them again in JH? (When do they become active)

I use a Sage Bass rod https://www.sageflyfish.com/product/specialty/bass-ii#!

I mainly use 20lb tippet and will most likely start fishing for them again in May.
