Newton said he landed the monster on 15-pound line and a light rod and it barely fit into his cooler.

Newton, 27, took the fish to a sporting goods store in Ashland to have it weighed on a certified scale. Monday, he took the snakehead to the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries’ office in Fredericksburg. Virginia has no snakehead category for record fish.
