A buddy of mine was fishing at Lake Sonoma last week and ended up hooking into this fish. He thougth it was his personal best bass. Then he thought it was a catfish when it finally broke the surface. Then he just didn't know what the hell he caught when he saw that is was neither.

Anyone have any ideas?

well, no adipose fin, so its not a salmonoid or a trout ... Looks like a Sacramento SquawFish. They've been in the lake for several years

Yup, a squawfish. I think John Lake told me he once caught one about 5 lbs on a buzzbait at Sonoma.

I would of thrown it on the bank for the buzzards. Did it get released?

Yeah, he released it back in the water. He got it on a football head jig being dragged on teh bottom. He had a hell of a time bringing that thing up. It was his first ever pontoon boat fish and it weighed over 8lbs (on a spring scale).

Thanks guys!
