Well, the bowfin have been an utter blast here the past couple of weeks, and nothing prettier than a spawning male! We've been doing good drifting crawlers on Brice Creek for fish from 2-5lbs. Today I was fishing the New River, jigging a rubber worm on my 5' UL rod and 4# test when I caught a 6lbs fish...that was one heck of a brawl! I've got a picture of the spawning colors from one of the fish from Brice Creek, hopefully it comes out well. If it doesn't, e-mail me and I'll send you the original that shows how briliantly colored these bad-boys get!
