The Northern Snakehead can survive up to four days out of water and can grow up to 33 inches long. The species has been nicknamed “Frankenfish” due to its shark-like teeth and aggressiveness. It was first introduced in a pond in Crofton, Maryland in June 2002. Researchers believe the species ended up in the U.S. due to uncaring disposal of aquarium pets. Other researchers think some people were trying to breed Snakeheads as they bring a large amount of money in some areas.

Saltwater on the other hand requires you to find an unoccupied unloading dock so that you can get your equipment setup.

While saltwater fishing in a boat, you run a high risk of becoming seasick.
These fish pose a significant threat to the great lakes due to their large size and feeding habits. The bighead carp consume vast amounts of food and quickly dominate a water body. The Asian Carp were imported around the nineteen seventies and were used for aquaculture operations. Although some believe that the Asian Carp should be kept alive because they are rich in omega-3s and are now being served in restaurants, Asian carp should be removed or eliminated completely from the great lakes because they will decimate the billion dollar fishing industry in the Great Lakes, and permanently damage the ecosystem.

What fly fishing, and the river proposed to the boys was a place where all of life, past memories and future dreams, can be remarked upon, experienced, or deliberated about.

At the marina, it was to the boat to drop off your drinks and snacks and talk to the captain to figure up how much bait and ice is needed need for the day.

Elizabeth Bishop states, “I stared and stared and victory filled up the little rented boat” (64-66). The fisherman is filled with victory from doing what other fishermen were unable to do: catch this fish. Even though the author has caught the fish, he admires the fish for what it has overcome and appreciates the magnificence of nature and releases the fish.
