Started off yesterday. 28" walleye and a good pike.

Then today went 2/5 on musky, with a great bonus pike, and a 15 lb bowfin! Man they can fight!

Not a bad opening musky weekend.

We didn't measure the bowfin....who would, right?

Lol.


Just found out the ontario record is 31", and 15.1 lbs.


This fish was 100 percent longer than 32".


Oh well!

Some description of the waters where you caught the bowfin please. Depth and trolling speed would also be interesting. I am pretty familiar with the Upper Great Lakes(fishery scientist who worked on Lake Superior for nearly 30 years) and am shocked by that fish if it came from the Georgian Bay.

Jim, it came from GB. We were casting big 11" dive and rise jerkbaits over rock humps. Clear water, surrounding water was 20-30 feet. This shoal topped out at 5 feet deep, and he was on the side of it. Blasted up off bottom and hit at boatside...

We have them in closer in the murky water often, where it's really weedy. But this fella was a strange catch for sure out there!

Me either, thought they were a southern thing

Put up a good fight on rod and reel

Dad always said eat them right out of the grease because if they cooled it was like chewing a cotton ball laugh

I do not fish so I am not an expert .But looking at those pictures I think it probably would be more actually described as a great day fishing Thanks for posting .If I could get into that kind of fishing I would become a fisherman

Thanks for your prompt answer Hutchy. I continue to learn at 80! Your cool/warm water fishery is much different from the cold water situation I worked with when we first established the offshore splake and later lake trout fisheries there.
