About 5 years ago I was fishing the channel between Lake Marie and Bluff when I caught this ugly thing and could only guess it was a dog fish. Now that I look at this eelpout, I think thats what I caught. It was about two foot long and looked real slimy. It also had a blueish tint around the head and eye's. I released it not even really knowing what I caught. Is it possible that this was a Eelpout?
40 years on the chain and I never saw one before or since.
