From what I've been reading the Northern Snakehead follow the same pattern as most fish in the area. They move to deeper water in the winter and are not as active. According to one of the articles I read they can survive as far north as Hudson Bay. If you want to go after them you could.
Fredrick, I think we're interpreting the law differently. It says no live snakehead can be released in PA waters. I interpret that as applying to one you catch.
"Anglers catching snakeheads should dispose of them properly. Anglers suspecting they have caught a snakehead are encouraged to NOT release it, and report it to the Commission at 610-847-2442 or via email"

Here are the Pa regs Jerry how do you interpret them ?

http://www.fishandboat.com/Fish/Penns ... shes/Pages/Snakehead.aspx

PA REGULATIONS

•It is unlawful for a person to sell, purchase, offer for sale or barter live snakehead species in Pennsylvania.

•It is unlawful to possess live snakehead species in Pennsylvania.

•It is unlawful to introduce or import live snakehead species into Pennsylvania waters.

•Transportation of live snakehead species in or through Pennsylvania is prohibited.

I read its as follows you may not be in possession of a live snakehead . And you cant introduce a snakehead into other waters . So if you keep the fish it cant be alive and you cant introduce it so you have to release to the water were you caught it .



IF YOU CATCH ONE

Anglers catching snakeheads should dispose of them properly. Anglers suspecting they have caught a snakehead are encouraged to NOT release it, and report it to the Commission at 610-847-2442 or via email.

This is not regulation and does not say kill dispose is loose term used to get ride of something

Also it says "ENCOURAGED to not release it". It does not say REQUIRED.

Ok, obviously you can't transport a live snakehead or reintroduce it somewhere.

So three other options would be to kill it and put it in a cooler, or on your stringer, or in the trash where legal. You're disposing it, not releasing it, and not introducing it anywhere. Seems like people are trying to find an excuse to release the snakeheads they catch. No matter how much you dissect the wording of the regs, it doesn't make killing and disposing snakeheads a difficult task to do. Just be upfront that you'd rather release them because they're fun to catch. You're legally allowed to do so

I talked to a Wco yesterday and he seconded on what I said about not being able to posses one alive and if you don’t won’t to creel the fish release it immediately to were it was caught. He also said that the state cannot require you to kill the fish but encourage you to. If you still don’t believe me ask yourself .

No, I totally believe you. No confusion on my part.

But the key here is "don't want to creel the fish." So by not wanting to creel the fish, you have to release it on the spot. That's true. But why not creel the fish(obviously killing it first)? Again, you're disposing it and aren't introducing a live one anywhere.

I'm not saying it's wrong to release any you catch where they're established. If you prefer to release them then go for it, you're legally allowed.......just saying the wording of law doesn't make it difficult in any way to creel/dispose of them.
