First cast, I pull this guy in.


Threw him ashore and he got a few extra holes in him from my Emerson. Put up a decent fight, strikes pretty hard.

I don't have the model, but it is a Rapala DT, orange with black tigerstripes. Pair of red treble hooks, got him with the rear.

I wish I could fully express how ashamed I am at myself for improperly IDing a fish.


Wow, I fail.

Bowfin.
LOL, We have so many snakeheads here now, folks are GUIDING for them!
Excellent eating, if you can avoid the grubs.
Remind me of walleye.

They have a very wide range as I used to catch them as a kid in Canada.  They make terrible table fare.

Hey, don't feel bad.  They do look very similar.  Now that I think about it, they also both look similar to cusk/ling:

When we catch those nasty bastards around here we throw them on the bank. My father in law caught a 5.5 pounder the other day. Creepiest damn thing ive ever seen
