MUCH HAPPY TO SHARE TOPSAIL ANGLER I KNOW WE DONT GET MUCH BOWFINNING HERE ON THE SITE BUT THE ADVERSITY OF IT ALL IS GOOD I BELIEVE ;)
LETS US ALL KNOW THERE IS OTHER WAYS TO FISH THAN JUST SALT AND WAITING FOR WHAT WE WANT TO FISH FOR,BOWFIN ARE A MAGNIFICENT FIGHTING FISH THAT CAN AND DO SHOCK YOU WHEN THEY TRASH A LURE.

:D Great job there Tim and Wayne, theres a couple of nice bow's in the mix.

When all else fails the bow's will normally give you something to stretch a line and they do it in style.

Tight lines <*)))))>{

I've always stuck a knife in their head and left em for the racoons and turtles. They destroy Crappie eggs (others too I'm sure) and fry. They are fun to fight though!

Nope NCPierman, The fish in my Avatar, well thats another one of my Passions. Thats just a little Catfish. Probably if i remember right.. about 26 inches.. Nothing like the big ones my brother-in-law was catching before deer season. One 62 lbs. Thats another trip I have to take. Anyone ever up for it, i would love to tag along. but right now I am having too much fun with Largemouths and Striper. Going after Specks on Wednesday. Hopeing that is as much fun as wrestling with a big Ole Striped Bass.
