Beautiful! Really digging that blue coloration... I've never seen that before! Still looking for my own 'fin. :(

They are quite uncooperative. It's not a bowfin pic if the fish doesn't have lots of dirt on it!

Gotta love those fish. Glad you got to experience one.

Man, bowfin are definitely one of the poster children for Roughfish.  Mean, tough, and under-appreciated.  Congrats on catching one of these awesome critters!

It was very uncooperative graceclaw. Very fun catch on 17lb line , Put up a hell of a fight with a circle hook in the side of his mouth.
