Landed this fin as soon as week got to the impoundment tonight. It looks like its been caught more than once. I think Ian and Brent caught the same fish in the past week.

yeah I think i seen a pic of this fin before cuz i made a comment that it looked like it had been fighting due to the cuts on its sides...

There is some research that says that fish have very short memories so they can never learn to avoid certain things such as lures (I've caught the same fish on consecutive casts more than once). They do, however, increase their defensive reactions to certain environmental stimuli like boat engines, footsteps, etc, as they age.

Apparently, this Bowfin didn't get that memo.

I hate to admit it, but I think you are right. I also took a picture of the other side of the fish I caught and the scars are the same. It will learn someday!!
