For those living in areas invaded by snakeheads, I highly recommend that you consider catching and EATING them! The snakehead is called pongee in many places, Hawaii included. We have them here in Lake Wilson the only certified fresh-water fishing venue on the island of Oahu, except when and if they ever re-open the Nuuanu watershed for catfishing again. The snakehead is FAR more valued as a food-fish here than the tilapia which is considered a "trash" fish here in Hawaii. It is a long-standing joke to us Hawaiians that there are many "high-end" restaurants on the mainland serving tilapia at premier prices! The ONLY way I would not recommend that snakehead be eaten is raw (sushi) as we would not eat any fresh-water fish in this manner. Fried, baked, broiled, poached and steamed snakehead is wonderfully delicious and supposedly (according to the Chinese people), healthy for "vigor", though I wouldn't go that far. However, the Chinese have been eating them for this reason for several thousand years so they MUST know something... This fish strikes lures savagely, fights respectably, and tastes great! I've eaten walleyes and the snakehead, to me, is equal in flavor. Go and talk to your Asian neighbors and ask them, and they'll tell you how best to prepare them. If you share your catch with them, better yet. You'll learn what you've been missing and maybe made a new friend as well. In a way, I wish we had your "problem" with snakeheads. We don't because they are highly prized here in Hawaii!
