  1. ok so hee in maryland the snakehead fish is a big bow hutting extravganza. Its fun as hell honestly. Now my questiom isdo any of you have a recipe and or smoker and meat temperatures......
     
  2. I can't believe some ***hole introduced these things to American waterways!  WHAT WERE THESE IDIOTS THINKING??  Good for you in killing and eatin them.  By the very nature of your question I'm not sure many people have experience with this fish.  I assume you have eaten these fish before.  Do you have a precook process?  Do you soak it in milk etc???  Whether it is a white meat or dark meat fish I would follow recipes for that same meat type fish.  Can't be very far off.  Maybe someone will come along with a better idea.  Good Luck.  Keep Smokin!

    Your on your own here, IMHO , they are bait fish. Let the native fish eat on THEM.  An eye for an eye, so to speak.

    Smells bad to cook and eat, NOPE , give me Catfish and I'm a happy Pappy. [​IMG]  Oh , and some Hushpuppies and Coleslaw...Cornbread would work too.

    Kill them all. Try Dynamite (not really, but wolud most likely work).

    Salute a vet and remember the fallen and the Towers Heros also...

    I've been smoking sheephead, whites and Carp all my life

    I've never done a Snake head but would be interested in helping with a recipe  to smoke them up
