    I am going to open LAKE WYLIE SNAKEHEAD CHARTERS. We will pusue and target the elusive snakehead on the waters of Lake Wylie. The cost will be $1,000 a day to pursue this rare species of fish! :roll_eyes::tounge_out:

    There was another one caught two years ago, but the angler released it back into the lake thinking it was a protected species. Hopefully this is the same fish, and they are not reproducing. :eek:oooh:

    Hmmm a snake head fish fry. That sounds exotic. If they take over I hope they're good with tartar sauce.:smile2:

    By the way whats all the talk about some plant that's taking over wylie. I heard about that this weekend. I heard that it growes from the bottom of the river up to the surface in 25' of water. And the dnr or somebody was releasing some kinda special carp that eats it. I think it was called ( hydrilla ) or something like that?:tounge_out:

    All jokes aside...these pests can destroy a fishery. They have been know to wipe out a whole lake. Try Googling em.

    They found these devils in Arkansas last year and earlier this year had an eradication program to try and wipe them out. Still too early to see if it worked, but these guys sure do reproduce fast.

    That is a real downer---I hope it doesn't get bad and they can do something about it.
