Whistling In The Dark Department:

If there are no fry, could the snakehead resident(s) of that pond be one

With some food fishes, one gender grows bigger and those are particularly
raised for market. Or if there is a considerable disparity between genders
and not a lot of food in the pond could the larger snakeheads have consumed
the smaller ones, which just happened to be the other gender?

This has been known to happen to aquarists when their work schedule got
hectic and feedings got few. They were the proud owners of a tank of males
or females (species depending).

Even with muskie stocked in a small farm pond, to the dismay of the owner,
there has been the occasion when one big cannibal was found.

Maybe a little lame. Just wishing. (I follow the Cubs too.)

All the best!
