7.0 lb. Bowfin caught by Mike S fishing in North Carolina on 04/11/09
26.5" / 7.0 lb. Bowfin caught by Mike S fishing on Saturday April 11, 2009 at 19:16 near Durham in Spokane County, North Carolina (NC), United States North America using a Senko a Worm by Gary Yamamoto Custom Baits

Haha, yeah baby! I just landed that 3 lbs bass and was still fired up. I hooked my leg in between two small tree saplings and hung out over the under brush for a good cast. I landed the Senko right on a nice weed bed when I noticed a fish laying right in front of me.

It was a Bowfin! Five foot from my feet. It was just looking at me. That top fin looks awesome fanning in the current. I skated that Senko over as fast as I could without scaring her.

I ran it six inches in front of her face. I was just standing there holding my breath. I must have blinked because I couldn't see my lure. All of a sudden I looked and realized the yellow tip of my Senko was hanging out of her mouth!

I eased back on my rod and she lit up. I forgot I had my drag set really loose for some panfishing I was doing earlier. She ripped loose a ran a long way.

By the time I got her to shore I was covered in mud. lol, all I could think of was that stupid coyote chasing the road-runner, no way in hell was this fish getting away. 27" and 7lbs. Dog will hunt...
