    I actually live here on the Piscataway Bay on the Potomac river and im a very avid fisherman/fly fisherman ... However I did not take place in the tourney. I have though caught 2 snakeheads on the fly and 2 by snagging with spinning gear. Good Eats! I tried for awhile to catch a small one for a tank even though it is illegal now I believe (No chance I would let it go again!)
