    Anyone eat snakeheads? I caught one in the backyard. Heard they were good, so I took a filet knife to it, fried it up & it was good--medium texture, white meat, not at all oily. Yum!

    Interesting. We should start some sort of charity to help the fisheries they're invading as well as the hungry.

        Best way to get rid of invasives is to put them on the menu!

              Never ate the heads... afraid of that poison. I love the bodies though. They make the best salads. See pic at http://www.fieldandstream.com/photos/trophyroom/recent/single?pnid=1001327623#1001327623

                I'm told they are really good eating. Never caught one to eat though.

                  I think that's one of the reasons that they're here in the first place----having been released by immigrants from Asia who like to eat them and wanted a fishery here.

                    Snake heads, no but I'm willing. Snake steaks, oh yeah!

                    Ask me about tarantula legs, deep fried. SE Asia.

                      Countryroad is right they were brought here from I believe China as a food source. They are pretty hardie creatures from my understanding being able to live out of water for an extended period of time and being able to walk/crawl/move across land to other water sources, they to my knowledge will attack you. You need to call your local DNR official and let them know you caught one and where.

                        Country Road. Don't pin it on immigrants releasing the fish for a fishery. Tough it is true they are here because people like to eat them they were not released with the intent to establish a fishery.

                            vtbasser---I've heard a couple of stories about their introduction including the old stand-by of being released from aquariums after they got too big. They are attractive little guys when they're small.
