5.0 lb. Bowfin caught by Mike S fishing in North Carolina on 12/13/08
24.5" / 5.0 lb. Bowfin caught by Mike S fishing on Saturday December 13, 2008 at 12:00 near Chapel Hill in Orange County, North Carolina (NC), United States North America using a Shad colored rattletrap. a Stick Bait by Rapala International

Caught this Bowfin in the first few mins. About 10 mins later I caught another much larger one. Got the second one to the shore and the hook came out and caught my leg. The fish got away and then came back on the bank. I tried to dive for him but no luck. Thanks to Joe for the help. Maybe this winter will be ok for fishing after all.

Well we fish in swamp areas and skanky water where these guys thrive. We try to target them specifically.
