23.5" / 4.0 lb. Bowfin caught by Mike S fishing on Sunday November 16, 2008 at 17:51 near Durham in Spokane County, North Carolina (NC), United States North America using a Super Shad Rap SD Shad a Crankbait by Rapala International

Fell in the creek right before this. Went to save myself and grabbed a handful of thorns. I'm already wet and this fin decided to run into some weeds off of the bank. I had to jump down in the water and pull it free. Dog will hunt.

Great story! And nice photo... you can tell there's a story behind it. And, oh yeah, nice fish, too ;-)

It starting to look as though that creek has a taste for humans. I almost slipped in - again - while I was leaving today.

Sweet. Great story. I've never caught a bowfin but have heard they are real strong.
Nice fish
