Rare Catch, Tilapia!

Type: Freshwater
Region: Central
Location: C&O Canal

Back in June I snagged this Tilapia out of the C&O canal at Pennyfield right by the lock. It took me 2 attempts (hooked pulled out on shore the first attempt) to land it. I snagged it only because I knew what it was and clearly Tilapia aren't native to MD (or the U.S.?). I like the taste of tilapia so I took it home and ate it. A friend has recently informed me he has seen one in a lake by my house. Even sent me a picture! Hopefully I can catch that one too and send a picture.
