A 17lb 6 oz snake head has been offically deemed the new world record by the International Game Fish Association. Take a look at this beast. He was fishing the Aquia Creek area near Quantico area of the Potomca River. Link provided to full article below. Just a friendly reminder if you are fishing and catch one you are REQUIRED by VADGIF to dispatch it immediately and keep it due to it being a non-native species. Congratulations to the angler!
