9.2 lb. Bowfin caught by Henry Veggian fishing in University Lake in North Carolina on 05/26/08
31.0" / 9.2 lb. Bowfin caught by Henry Veggian fishing on Monday May 26, 2008 at 16:00 in University Lake near Chapel Hill in Orange County, North Carolina (NC), United States North America using a Tube

I've been catching post-spawn Bowfin in the shallows. This particular fish was a female. She turned the boat around - with two people in it - and headed for deep water. Bowfin like to jump and "walk" on the water, but this one was just brute submarine strength. I didn't see her until she tried to rip my hand off next to the boat.

That's the biggest bowfin I have seen. Congratulations! That must have been an amazing fight from this prehistoric predator (now your prey).
