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.
