Maryland puts gift card bounty on Snakeheads.

This may be old news for you guys but I just read this.

Sounds like it's more of a raffle than payment for each dead fish but it's probably worth entering.

All Maryland has to do is ban snakeheads and put up a "NO SNAKEHEADS" sign. That'll teach 'em.

Soo its open season on these fish all year long. I wonder if you need a license to fish for snakeheads.

Seriously, someone was just talking the other day about this being a real possibility in the future in MD. First I've heard about it. You?

It pisses me off when the state cries poor and turns around and spends on useless programs. You know as well as I do the bounty will not put a dent in the snake head population. It's just a feel good waste of money by the DNR.

If there are LOTS maybe issue these to the poor FREE instead of allowing them to buy luxury expensive seafood at taxpayer expense?

I would imagine fishing for them will require a permit, but will just shooting them be acceptable or will we need a hunting permit?

Snakeheads? I'm told they're pretty darn tasty. They're supposedly a delicacy in Thailand. But I wouldn't know because I can't even look at those gross buggers.

I caught a 14 pound Snakehead last year on the PO just outside of Mattawomen creek. Big mean sumbitch.

The chef at Alewife in Baltimore Apparently prepares a mean snakehead. My neighbor went snakehead hunting last week and cooked some up. Didn't try it yet but I hear it's delicious.
