Trophy bowfin a rare treat along Lake Erie

Aug 13, 2020 | Ottawa Outdoors | 2 comments

The feisty bowfin is a rare catch along the Lake Erie shoreline, and in canals and marshes around the area. Avid angler Mitch Geduldig, 11, caught this 23-inch trophy while fishing a boat channel in Port Clinton recently. His father, Brad, has been fishing Lake Erie for more than 40 years, and Mitch’s trophy, also known as a dog fish and mudfish, is the first he’s ever seen. While bowfin are not good table fare, they are known for their sharp teeth and ability to fight.
