Yesterday was a wonderful day to be out on the water! Didn't have much time to prepare, so I picked up a couple dozen medium shiners and some nightcrawlers and was hoping for anything. Well, what I was in store for was a fun day of catching bowfin. What a blast, and challenge, on 4lb line and light to ultralight rods. I caught a couple on my cat rod I had set up all day which I had two or three shiners on a circle hook on. I only caught one cat though, my first flattie of the season! You can see by the picture, he's not a lot to brag about, but hey, I haven't seen a flathead since last November! Also had a little luck with a couple of nice sunfish chiming in. So all in all, the river is really starting to pick back up!
