What To Bring: Proper snakehead tackle is fairly simple, though minorly tweaked from what you might normally use to target largemouths. Whether you're using spinning gear or a conventional outfit, you'll want to be spooled with quality braid. Thirty-pound-test would be about the lightest you should go, with 65-pound being about the max you'd need. Not only does the lack of stretch in the braid help you drive hooks into hard snake mouths, it will help you winch them out of the thick weeds and pads they love. To that end, a beefy rod—such as a flippin' stick—is a wise choice. With their preference for heavy vegetation in mind, hollow-body frogs are a top producers that can play in the nastiest cover, however, soft-plastic buzzing toads rigged weedless also get smoked. If the topwater action is lacking, snakeheads also have no problem smacking a spinnerbait, chatterbait, or Fluke-style soft-plastic bait.
