Anyone have any idea how abundant they are in the area and what parts of Baltimore county theyíve spread to? Would love to smack some of these with my bow without having to head to southern md.

Snakeheads may be an invasive species but they are damn good eating!

They're in the eastern rivers now too. They are all over the Bay.

Lots of bow fishing leagues springing up on the lower Potomac.

I have caught them and ate them and they seem like fish for people that don't like fish that much. Very plain white fish, IMO. The entire family prefers perch over them hands down.

They fight like hell too. I caught a 28" and everyone within 300 yards knew I had a big one. Use a net, many times they are NOT hooked and just camped on the lure like a vice grip.

What is the preferred setup for fishing these? Seems like they'd be a lot of fun, and I wouldn't mind some light white fish for supper sometime...

Pretty much the same setup for largemouth. It makes quite the sight when they blowup on a top water lure.
