Michigan Fishing Trip

30" Northern Pike

Steven - Dogfish (Bowfin) 2015.jpg

24" Dogfish (Bowfin) - I'm obviously less happy about this one. :roll: I thought it was a monster pike until it came to the surface... It was still a great fight.

Both caught in Michigan while on vacation visiting my family.

I would have been happier with the Bowfin. I love the fight these fish put up. I do a 3-4 day trip on Labor Day every year just to target bowfin. They are, for my money, the hardest fighting fish in freshwater. The Northern Snakehead is probably a match, but they are essentially the same fish.

You are right about the fight, but imagine the size of the pike that fights like a 24" bowfin... That would be huge, and that was my disappointment when it surfaced. Still, it was a lot of fun.
