He’s been at this for a while with good results.  Always has a good year with quite a few big fish in his kayak.

He just got beat and beat bad… the new record is now 19 lbs. 5 oz.  just caught by Emanual May 2018.  Waiting for the official paperwork to come back as I write this.  But Luis had a great title for a while…

I met Luis in May 2105  at the Maryland Snakehead Tournament which unfortunately is no longer being held.  No world records were caught that year but he did take 2nd place for the most fish caught.  Luis is professional photographer who loves snakehead fishing.  He was a real laid back guy and caught this monster on a Mepps Rooster Tail in in May 2014 on Quantico Creek in Virginia.

    1. Well I run the blog, Dr D and do most of the posting so there is nothing to join this is a simple “low tech” site, LOL. I would like to hear from other snakehead fishermen as much as possible. Just share this site with your fishing buddies and lets post. Just post the link to any of your fishing videos that you have on Youtube. If you don’t have them on Youtube then set up an account for free and upload your videos, it will give a link to share on social media. Post that link here and I will approve it.
