    scourge to bass fishermen all over the south

    (I love it when they think they have a real nice largemouth, only to find that their 10 lure has been destroyed by a bowfin! Saw a guy lip land one on TV. He won't do that again.)

    I had to research this fish. One mean fish that will eat anything. Article states the male guards the eggs and they can breath air. Look like a walleye mated with a trout and then go too close to the reactor. lol Hope it doesnt clean out your pond

    Don't see why it shouldn't work, if there are "grinnel" in the lakes and rivers, I am pretty sure that more than a few have fallen to a catfish or three! Try it out, just be careful getting them out of your pond, sounds like they can get nasty protecting their young.
