6/17 bowfin hitching a ride in the yak

Postby bassman29 » Jun Sun 18, 2017 2:00 am

Hit up some water with the dankster after playing moving men for the newest gurnee resident.
Never caught a bowfin before but that changed 10 min after getting in the water. Upon netting the slimy s.o.b it became a complete cluster phuck. Fumbled with grips , grips go into water, grab fin, fin darts out of hand and makes a dash to the back of the yak.
Was definitely an amateur hour type moment.
Thanks to urbanhog for the pics.

Thanks for helping me move guys. I really didn't expect bassman to help with no shirt on, but hey help is help.

Had to take a break from moving myself and had 3 hook ups in 15mins.

So you think that gatorade bottle is safe in the back? Lmao.
I can't tell you how many times I've had tops of bottles slimed by pike and other species. Pike slime is the most awful taste it is so bad even if you have the toughest stomach. I couldn't imagine what fin slime would do to you if ingested.

So fishspank buys a yak with a toilet seat....now I've seen it all.

Ok I will be there tomorrow in my speedo to help you unpack. :D You will probably want to gouge out your eyes afterwards.

Wait a minute what exactly do you mean by "pound my honey hole."

Woah nice fish all. I'm a fan of the bowfin but have only landed two myself.

"Nice" looking bowfin there, I guess... with a piggy bass for variety. Looks like a good trip, that's help with moving karma for you.

truth is, when we asked bassman if he had any snacks, he opened up his yak and offered up some cucumber flavored gatorade and fresh fin :lol:

Always a good time with the bassman, it was nice catching up with the hog as well. With the big move over i was eager to get on the water, turned out to be a decent ( hot) day.

Here's a shot of the biggest mutt I tangled with.

Figure about 1 spinner bait per fin, maybe less.
