8.5 lb. Bowfin caught by Nate Thomas fishing in North Carolina on 03/18/11
27.0" / 8.5 lb. Bowfin caught by Nate Thomas fishing on Friday March 18, 2011 at 18:30 near Chapel Hill in Orange County, North Carolina (NC), United States North America using a #1 Mepps Spinner (No, that's not a joke.) a In-Line Spinner by Mepps

Out fishing for some white bass and hook up with this big'n. My first bowfin ever, that thing was going nuts. I definitely enjoyed bringing that boy in. I really did catch in on a #1 Mepps, I'm not making that up.

They'll hit most spinning gear - crankbaits, spinners (inline and safety pin), soft plastics, etc. - so i don't doubt that they'd bite on a little #1 Mepps.

They're awesome fish, and just about the best fight per pound you'll find in freshwater.

Nice job landing it - they're toothy, love to run for cover, and can be tough to land on light gear.
