Full Grown Sculpin Not Baby Snakehead
Location: Upper Potomac River
I caught this baby Snakehead in Bloomington, MD in the Potomac River.
DNR Response: Matthew, it's not a snakehead, It's either a Blueridge or Potomac Sculpin. The exact identification is difficult without being able to count fin rays and chin pores. Here is a link to a key to Maryland fishes from Rich Raesly of Frostburg University.
