Sweet catch, O4L. What a cool fish.
Perfect Snakehead pose, too. I can't wait to tie into one of those eventually!
Good on you for persistence in that spot, man.
This is one of those fish that you all should chase some day.
I lost so many before I got a good hookup that stuck. Everyone has a different style of fishing and for me, I am a sight fishing nut. I tried a 4/0 hook but could not get penetration to hook up properly. I ended up using a size 2 hook and a small shiner. It is one of those fish that I am proud to have caught. I hooked up with larger and smaller ones but this is the one I caught and it was mellow compared to the others. Once landed it only thrashed once.
They are all fin and have powerful runs.
It is all perspective!
