8-year-old Zaniel Cole catches prehistoric fish on Arkansas River

As Open anglers look for five big bass on the Arkansas River this week, 8-year-old Zaniel Cole has already caught something incredible this week. He caught two very rare species, the shovelnose sturgeon and paddlefish.

Shovelnose sturgeon and paddlefish are distant cousins in the order Acipenseriformes dating back to the time of the dinosaurs, hence the moniker "Primitive Fishes."
