Snakehead Fishing Report
Summertime snakehead fishing has been very productive as of late. We have been landing anywhere between 5-15 snakeheads per trip ranging anywhere from 2-11 pounds. Every single fish we have been catching has been on topwater frogs. Lately, I have been using the 4" Cosmic Baits "I Frog" matched with a 4/0 wide gap Owner hook. I fish close to lock down drag on my Shimano Stradic and the 30LB Bullbuster braid has been up to the test every time, landing multiple fish up to 11 pounds without issue. This line really gives me the ability to get far casts while still being able to horse these fish away from structure when needed.
The best times to target them have been from 5 PM to 1 AM and the bite has been peaking right before sunset. Sometimes when they are picky it is important to slow down and to make sure the frogs are hitting them right in the head to trigger a strike. Rain pushes them up the banks so if experiencing a dry spell, try a spinnerbait or a lure that can cover some deeper water to trigger random strike.
If you haven't tried snakehead fishing, you really need to. These are the best freshwater gamefish in Florida and they have a completely undeserved poor reputation. Give me a call at 914-588-6360 and we will get you hooked up to that monster on topwater that you're dreaming about.
