An absolutely massive invasive snakehead has been pulled from the Potomac River by Juan Duran, and he may very well have set a world record! The current record stands at 17.4 pounds, caught in Japan, but Juan’s fish is four feet long, over 18 pounds, and caught in Virginia!
“I think they’re cool looking…I love the way they fight.. And you can catch them with a bass lure,” Duran said. “When you’re fighting a fish that big,… concentrate on that one fish – pretty awesome feeling.”
Duran’s pictures and scale are on their way to the IGFA for certification as a world record.
