First, check out this video from ABC 7 News in Virginia. It seems angler Juan Duran may have set a new world record for snakehead right here on American soil. This week, Duran wrenched an 18-pound monster out of the Potomac River near Washington D.C. The current world-record snakehead weighed just over 17 pounds and was caught in Japan…right where these fish belong in the first place. If you think a snakehead that size in our rivers is mildly freightening, check out video number two.

This, folks, could be where we’re headed.
