16.0" / 4.0 lb. Bowfin caught by Chris Thibault fishing on Tuesday July 10, 2007 at 17:58 in Lake Champlain near Colchester in Chittenden County, Vermont (VT), United States North America using a broken back/perch color a Swimbait by Rapala International

I was about to go in for the night and i decided to do one more cast. As i was reeling my lure in i got a bite. It was almost snapping my pole i half. well thats what it looked like but it didn't and my older cousin helped me bring it onto the docks. And thats how it happened.

HI CHRIS,
THIS IS THE 1st BOW THAT I HAVE SEEN ON THE SITE.
I HAVE A FRIEND WHO MOVED DOWN TO NORTH CAROLINA
HE CAUGHT ABOUT 20 LAST YEAR INCLUDING ONE 35in.
THEY ARE TERRIFIC FIGHTERS AND THE LARGER ONES
CAN WREAK HAVOC ON YOUR EQUIPMENT.I HOPE YOU CAN
HOOK SOME MORE THIS YEAR.

That's why you always make "one more cast" ;-) Great story! I hope to hook into a bowfin someday. I have heard those prehistoric fish are great fighters. You can attest to that firsthand with this catch. Nice one.
