24.0" / 4.5 lb. Bowfin caught by Joe Angelcyk fishing on Wednesday January 07, 2009 at 16:10 near Chapel Hill in Orange County, North Carolina (NC), United States North America using a Red Spinnerbait a Spinnerbait

After work I headed to my usual spot. Was very windy out and the water was high and muddy. I landed this fin about 5 min after I got there. Lost another up on the shore then it started raining too hard to keep fishing. 1st bowfin for the year.

I guess you really want to win the Triangle Bowfin Anglers Group chicken dinner contest, 2009.

Just wait till I get out there with my new rod.

I never expected to catch a fish in those conditions, usualy that impoundment wont be any good till the water starts going back down. The cool thing about the wind today, I could cast from one end of the impoundment and the wind would carry my lure to the other end.

That looks like a rubber fish. I call shenanigans. Somewhere there is a bait shop missing it's mounted Bowfin.

The one day I leave my gear at home. Only brought a fly rod and some flies.

Grats. I might have to take my kayak out Saturday and catch up to you.
