Prehistoric Predators Mix In As Well.........4/14/2019

This region supports some of the largest Bowfin Rodeos in North Carolina........it's hectic when you set the hook on panfish gear on a telescopic pole ......

This fish was in the 18" class at four to five pounds John............I've landed some big ones over the years.....

Our brackish waters are full of these native fish and its difficult to catch the bigger ones on terminal tackle.........get a net on one now and then......this is violent from hook set........

NICE!! Only ever caught one ,21.5" on a Black Reaper style Grub on a 16th or 1/8th oz black ball jig , It's a leech imitation . I believe it was out of 14' of water . wHATS THE ESTIMATED LENGTH AND wEIGHT OF THAT FINE FISH jEFFREY! Also what did it hit?

Adam, those things fight like there's no tomorrow!  I've caught one, on a 4 1/2' UL crappie rod.  I saw it eyeballing my spinnerbait, just feet from me, in shallow clear water.  I dabbled the spinner in front it the fish like a jig, and IT INHALED IT AND TRIED TO RUN OFF!  Only had a few feet of line out.

Oh, and don't "lip" one like a Bass.  These things have teeth.
