Giant Snakeheads only appear in ponds, and they have a large shadow (similar to a carp). They’re worth a tidy sum of 5.5k bells, but we’ve found them relatively easy to catch. Keep checking your ponds and look for some large shadows within. Catch any you see, or craft an extra supply of Fish Bait — click here to find out how to do that — and spend some time by the pond.
