"Black & Decker Tackle Wrecker"

This is how Mike Thompson described the bowfin he caught this weekend.  Apparently it wrecked his KVD frog.

And here is what a dogfish did to my hook this weekend as well.

Mike's Dogfish

I got this fin at a lake in the Alexandria Area.  It wasn't measured, so it's not entered in the Championship.

Landed a Beauty- But It's Ineligible for the Championship

27+ inches
She was three to four inches past my 24 inch board.  Hit on just a little piece of torn up minnow I was using to catch sunfish and crappie with at Platte/Sullivan Lakes.  Fought for about 10 minutes on 4lb Fireline.  Because the minnow is dead bait it's not allowed for the Grand Championship Tournament.  It was released of course.
