If I had to guess what two fish you would catch in a hour's time, I wouldn't of guessed a bowfin and a pike. I'm sure it was a pleasant surprise.
Bent two hooks out and 1 in. Musta been on the hit and pull. Got it back in easy. Fuckin eyes were following me as I removed the hooks it seemed.Nice! Very difficult fish to hold on to. Did he wreck your Mepps?
