Species:

Location: 
new hope creek, stagecoach road waterfowl impoundments
Date Caught: 
Sunday, May 23, 2021
Notes: 
I was not very well equipped to handle such a large Bowfin. It gave no indication of being hooked, so likely sat with a circle hook in its mouth for a couple hours before I found out I had a fish on my line. I tried to minimize the amount of time that it was out of the water since it was hooked so long, hence the lackluster picture. Fish was likely pushing double digits.

I actually clicked on this entry because I thought the picture was really cool and well-posed. Props to you for wanting to maximize the fish's survival at the expense of your glory!
