I’m starting this thread for anyone wants to cry about snakeheads. With that being said keep your complaints off my Bowfin and Snakehead successes thread .

Here is your first order of business. https://www.pennlive.com/news/2018/07/ ... nkenfish_spreading_t.html

I had 5 kids and 3 poodles.

Now I have 1 kid and no dogs.

All from snakeheads

My two cents... While I certainly wouldn't want to see them in the Letort, Breeches, etc. I've caught enough of them to know what fun they can be. They are incredibly aggressive when they're turned on and put up a hell of a fight. So I wouldn't necessarily complain if they found there way into another waterway near me.

I think snakeheads are great and need to populate the planet so we can feed starving kids.

Obviously 2 different critters but by how much?

Bowfin are native to PA. Snakeheads are not.

Are the two similar breeders, similar in food consumption and similar in aggressive nature?
If so, while not good, they could displace the bowfin if they have an advantage but might not effect other fish to the degree people think.

I'm asking because I'm curious and have no clue, I'm not defending or advocating for snakeheads, just an honest question.

I also question if they would survive in a cold water creek like the letort. Anyone know if that's even possible?

They bury themselves in mud during the colder months and wake up in April/May or so. Possible that Letort is cold enough year round that they couldn't handle it.

FarmerDave, that was funny.


Snakeheads? Terminate with extreme prejudice.

I find this rather amusing about telling board members where to post and what not to post.

A bowin and Snakehead success thread is for fishing success stories and photos. Not a debate on if Snakeheads are hurting local fish pops . I found it amusing that everyone decided to turn a success thread into a debate. Hence why we moved it over here . And I’m glad I amuse you I hope to continue this amusement in the future.
