25.0 in. Bowfin caught by Henry V fishing in North Carolina on 06/18/09
25.0" Bowfin caught by Henry V fishing on Thursday June 18, 2009 at 21:40 near Durham in Spokane County, North Carolina (NC), United States North America using a lure by Mepps

This was my first Bowfin of the day. It was sitting in the main channel, right at the upstream mouth of the impoundment gate. It blasted my lure when I began retrieving and charged straight down the gate at me, so I had to reel about twenty feet of line very fast to keep the line tight. Despite the bloody mess, the fish swam away when I released it, and it will be fine. Bowfin are as tough as nails.

Wow, you guys hit a nice streak today. I could never get Joe to go to that hole before. He only wants to fish lower. Good thing he's leaving town for a few weeks. Gives us time to wear out all the good spots again.
