First bowfin out of the Coinjock ditch. Thought I had hooked a jumbo bass the way he wrapped me up and wouldn’t budge. Thankful I had braid spooled. Got several frog fish before this, but nothing picture worthy.
Couldn’t be happier with my trip to Florida. I was proud to represent Fishbrain as a Brand Ambassador, and we made huge progress towards growing the future, the user base, and the partnerships of this game-changing app. . While here, I made new friends (pictured: @bojan, @rolandmartin, @platypusfishinglines, @fishing_with_fowler, @stacyparfait, @sorvis; not pictured: @aprilvokey, @scottmartinchallenge, @johana, @lisajk, @sreelalgudi) and did a ton of fishing. . Using Fishbrain’s Premium Intel features and connections with other anglers I made on the app, I was able to land 270 fish representing 34 species. Of those, 23 were new species for me, including the Bowfin pictured here. . If you haven't tried Premium, now is the time. It will change your life.
Fishing is so funny sometimes. I spent two full days trying to catch a bowfin in north Florida and Georgia with no luck. Then the other day on the Catawba in South Carolina, I landed my first one on a wacky senko with the lightest rod I own. We didn’t even know they existed in this waterway. These fish are SUPER strong, aggressive and her death rolls almost got her free a couple times. Check out that tail: does anyone know if they bed like bass, or did something get her?
