Good info about snakehead populations, habitat and habits, as well as how to fish for them >

My brother has access to a fresh water pond that empties into the west shore of the Chesapeake Bay. It has pickerel, bass, sunfish and snakeheads. He filleted and grilled one and they are really outstanding. The main problem is how slimy they are. He now lets them dry in the sun a while before fileting. I am not that big a fan of eating fish, but these snakeheads challenge rockfish for the dinner table.
