6.2 lb. Bowfin caught by Henry Veggian fishing in North Carolina on 10/21/08
25.0" / 6.2 lb. Bowfin caught by Henry Veggian fishing on Tuesday October 21, 2008 at 16:31 near Chapel Hill in Orange County, North Carolina (NC), United States North America using a DT-6! a Crankbait by Rapala International

I took my new Fenwick rod for a spin after work, and we crashed into this bruiser. The rod is a 7', medium-heavy action, with 20 lb braided, and it felt like I was using a Barbie pole. But at the moment of turth, when I had to turn the fish away from a fallen tree, the rod made good on its backbone. Anyone who doubts the sporing merits of the mighty Bowfin is surely mad. This one even bit my pliers as I was removing the hooks - twice.

I think you had just caught this on the day Mike and I met you Henry. At that point we only knew you as the Mad Bowfin Professor.
