Todd Murphy was out on the Potomac River with his bow and arrow, when he came across a giant fish. No, really, it was historically huge!
Murphy’s aim proved to be deadly, and he reeled in the snakehead. It turned out to be 17.47 pounds, setting a state record. It may sound a little primitive, but snakeheads have been identified as invasive species that can damage ecosystems. That’s because they have no natural predators, other than guys like Murphy.
The Maryland Department of Natural Resources inspected the fish, and verified that Murphy set a state record. The state even issues paperwork certifying the catch. So no matter how big the fish gets in subsequent tales, there will always be proof of the real size.
