Burnt Mill Creek Fishing Reports

Recently shared catches and fishing spots

  1. Details: Blue Catfish

    My first catfish

  2. Details: Largemouth Bass

    Caught a 3 pound bass

  3. Details: Bowfin

    Finally got my Bowfin and he measured out to be 23 inches which is a citation fish in NC! So stoked right now, this has to be one of the coolest fish I've ever ...more caught and man did he fight. He bent my hook into a circle when he slammed the plastic, and took off running while doing some gnarly jumps. Everything about this fish is prehistoric and definitely marks one of my best catches yet.

      Ya dude bowfin and gar are my favorite freshwater fish to catch, unbeatable in fighting power and uniqueness

      No way this is my last one these things are angry dinosaurs, and in my opinion a highly underrated fish. But the next fish on my list will be a gar. @seaturtles

  4. Details: Other Freshwater

    Huge Snapping Turtle I caught with cut shad. I was originally fishing for bowfin and gar when all of the sudden I felt tremendous strain on my line. Managed to work ...more him to the shore and scoop him in my net. Had to weigh at least 25-30 pounds. Mean as a snake though, he even started hissing at me when I got close for the photo. After a few shots, I released this dinosaur back into the water.

      I pried his mouth open with my metal rod holder and painstakingly worked it free with my pliers. Needless to say, a scary process. @JustFish

      I know I'm not giving up until I get one. I see lots of them every time I go out @seaturtles

      Dang well keep at it man. I honestly didn't get my first bowfin for months of trying but then they just started flowing in once I got the first
    6. tillerenzo 0
      Nope that's it. Saw a few bowfin but couldn't get them to hit anything. @seaturtles

      Ah man I hate catching those monsters. You get anything else?

  5. Details: Largemouth Bass

    Another bass that hit the crank while I was fishing for bowfin. This one and the other went into a feeding frenzy once the rain stopped. Working the crank past grass ...more beds near shore provided results. Always fun catching healthy bass.

  6. Details: Largemouth Bass

    Walking down the bank I spot fished a bowfin and casted about 15 feet in front of it to work the crank towards him to initiate a strike, but as soon as I reeled ...more a few times this bass comes out of nowhere and slams it! Needless to say after the fight, the bowfin disappeared but I got a sweet bass out of it. Guess the creek is first come first serve.

  7. Details: Bluegill Sunfish

    Accidentally caught this little sunfish while working a crankbait. I was reeling in and one of the treble hooks caught him in the side. Nice fish though, and was ...more barely harmed from the experience so I released him back into the water. So I guess accidentally catching a fish still counts as not being skunked!

      That size is perfect for catfish
