A 17-pound, 6-ounce northern snakehead fish caught in June by a Spotsylvania County plumber is the biggest ever caught.
It was already a special day for Caleb Newton and Phil Wilcox — the two friends enjoying a bass-fishing bachelor party on the Potomac River. But when the men spotted a long shadow swimming among the reeds, they knew things were only going to get more interesting.
Mr. Newton, a plumber, said that rather than eating the fish he plans on mounting it as a reminder of the day.
"It went crazy, the water got to boiling, the grass was coming up, so I let the line go on its own," Mr. Newton said. "With this fish you had to let him play his game."
