South Lindstrom Lake - Sat. Opener

12 posts in this topic

My husband caught this 29" Norwegian Walleye today....just kidding.... My wife and I were fishing South Lindstrom today and I caught this Bowfin (Dogfish). What a blast to catch! It measured 29 inches and was caught in 7 feet of water using a slip bobber, hook and minnow.

Nice fish, jighead! I usually just shake those things loose with a pliers. You're a real man for picking up that prehistoric beast. Thanks for the pic.

You should cut-em open and let them go for the turtles. They eat eggs right out of the nests.

I have to admit, we forgot the net so my wife had to land it with her bare hands...she thought the thing was going to paralyze her arms if she touched it!

You didn't mention the rows of little barbwire-like teeth to her, did you?

This may be just a silly rumor but...

I heard that they sort of "bark" or make some kind of noise with their lungs...Do they?

I have heard them make some pretty awful noises when out of the water. I hooked into one that was about 5 lbs on Chisago one time and they put up a really good fight. But thats about all they are good for.

I caught about a 4 pounder on an UL panfish rod, that was fun. I landed it with a net and wouldn't even lift it into my boat. I had just given it the spring cleaning and no way was a slimy dog fish gonna ruin it.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
