Not a Snakehead

Type: Chesapeake
Region: Upper Bay
Location: North Locust Point

The fish in the attached photo was caught in a bait trap in the Baltimore Harbor (North Locust Point). It looked very similar to a snakehead so I wanted to report it.

DNR Response: It is most likely a Striped Blenny. It is hard to tell by the photo, but it could be a Feather Blenny. Itís definitely a blenny though. Here is a link to 2 previous posts that show pictures of other fish that are commonly mistaken for snakeheads.
