March 26, 2023

Higher, faster, muddier water conditions made fishing and catching tough.... found some fish in areas I hadn't caught them in before.
Bowfin appear to be spawning, or very close to it.

Caught a new PB Shortnose Gar... 29"!

Also caught a Freshwater Drum and a Common Carp:


  1. Nice shortnose!

    The spawning colors on those bowfin - wow! Amazing that you're catching so many already.

    Bad news for me, I fell and fractured a vertebra. I may be done for the year.... or longer, who knows? They'll X-ray it again next month and then decide on surgery or not. I'll talk about it in the next video that comes out.

  2. A buddy who has fished for bowfin in AR and southern MO has seen adults guarding their fry balls already. My local bowfin may be spawning now as well, I feel. I've never seen them guarding fry, so I'm looking forward to that.
    Darn, Mark! Sorry to hear about your injury! I hope you can return to fishing ASAP!
