Alas, no. The bowfin continues to elude me.
Gotta get back on em, after a ton of hooks up on them, i finally got mine on New Year’s Day. Not sure where you live, but got mine out of a lil black water swamp area, this time of year water is super clear, found him chomping on bait on the edge of a grass bed, got him on a white/chartreuse muddler variation I’ve been fiddling around with.

I don’t know how I missed this thread. Here’s some bowfin that my nephew and I caught out of a fishing spot loaded with them. Mine were caught on fly and his were caught using a spinning rod and yellow with black beetle spin.

They are fun on conventional tackle, but the ones I have caught on the fly have been like hauling in a log, until you get them to the boat and they liven up a little.

Black and purple baitfish flies, mine has rattles in it. Weather can turn them off, the colder the water the slower the strip.
