Caught my first Bowfin today. I got it with a crankbait off a jetty in the Lake Dardanelle pool of the Arkansas river. It was 3.9# and tore up my fatfree guppie. I had to cut off the rear treble. I thought I had a huge bass when he hit. Just before I caught him I caught the largest Drum i've caught. The way he stripped off line from my reel I thought he was a striper. They were both fun to catch tho.
