Black & Decker Tackle Wrecker Strikes Again

I was pre-fishing for my next tournament on Rush Lake near Ottertail when I had a big dogfish hit my Aruku Shad.  Can you tell?  Can't say I've ever caught a bowfin on a rattlebait before.  It was raining so I didn't get a picture of the fish.  I would say it was about 26.5 inches long.  It put up a tremendous fight and got all tangled in the net.

It was raining so I didn't get a picture of the fish.

Happy 4th of July!

This nice fin was caught last summer by Nate Dykes in the Brainerd area.  I had forgotten I had the photo.  Better late than never I guess.

Bowfin From Lake Ida

This was caught by Patrick Gibbons of Terre Haute Indiana with a jig and a dead leech on June 14th of this year.  The fish had been hanging around a dock in the grassy shallows.  Patrick and his daughter Molly have been after a bowfin ever since Molly had one break her line a few years ago.  They come out to Lake Ida once a year.

Congratulations on your catch!
