18.0 in. Bowfin caught by Joe A fishing in North Carolina on 03/20/10
18.0" Bowfin caught by Joe A fishing on Saturday March 20, 2010 at 20:30 near Chapel Hill in Orange County, North Carolina (NC), United States North America using a Lipless Bait by Rapala International

Well I headed out to Stage coach for some evening fishing. As soon as I got there I lost a huge fin. I had him right up to the bank had my grips in its mouth and it trashed its way loose like my grips were made of paper. A little later Josh showed up and we made are way across the impoundment. We sat there watching the group of people start pulling in fins left and right. Some guy pulled in a stringer with at least 10 fins on it. So we decided to go do some fish thiefing. I distracted Josh by making him take a picture of there stringer and ended up catching this little guy while his back was turned. Would have made MikeS proud!

some kid with a long pony tail, he had to walk back to his car brought back a huge cooler and tossed them all in. But I did learn what they were catching them on and I'll be back there tomorrow.

Who the hell would take 10 fins out of there, and why?
