Bowfin
Size: 
Big

My favourite fish from my favourite species! Caught at Eli's spot. I had a large one get off the last time I was here and needed redemption. The best fish I've ever caught, will be very hard to get a bigger one in Ontario

That is a huge bowfin for sure.  I think this catch earns you the Golden Fish Award!  Congratulations Amia Calva!

Awesome bow man. I'm stocking up some cut bait to do battle myself. Can't wait.

I've been wanting to catch a bowfin like this since I first started fishing. I couldn't be happier
