7.1 lb. Bowfin caught by Thorsten Evans fishing in Lake Champlain in Vermont on 07/18/08
30.0" / 7.1 lb. Bowfin caught by Thorsten Evans fishing on Friday July 18, 2008 at 12:15 in Lake Champlain 5.4 km from Ferrisburg in Addison County, Vermont (VT), United States North America

Using small perch as bait (5 year old filling the bait bucket) about 18-20" below a large bobber I lost a massive Bowfin earlier in the day on 15# test and 9" steel leader. Upgraded to 30# test and 2 - 12" leaders, I landed this guy after a nice fight. Also caught 2# smallie, 19" pickerel, 17" Pike, another 5lb bowfin and numerous other smaller fish all in a 4-5 hour time slot.

When a 5 year old gets bored from catching too many fish...thats a good day! In 5 hours 3 of us caught:

40+ perch
10+ pumpkin seed
10+ rock bass
5+ large mouth bass (all small)
2 smallies
1 Pike
1 pickerel
2 bowfin

It was a very good day. My buddie has a camp out here and he had been scrapping mussel shells off the rocks under his dock. This obviously drew in the perch, rock bass and pumpkin seed. Where they go, the big fish follow.
