Yep that's the one..no spot on it. Slightly squarer tail..but that's it he was mean..bit right through my net lol.

 

No spot means it's an adult female. Both genders are born with the spot but the female loses it once adult.

I won't let those nasty buggers on my boat anymore, I would just cut the line if I can't get the hook out in the water

They are JUST edible. You'd pretty well have to be starving and have nothing else to eat. I think as far as edible is concerned, a bowfin is the last thing on the list just above gnawing off your own arm.

Thanks for the info guys.. She took the bait deep. There was nobody to give it to so i took it home...filleted it was different to cut up. No bones i left the belly fat. My sister ate it for breckfast thismorning heavily breaded cooked in butter she called me and said it wasent too bad lol. On a side note it fought like a champ. My girlfriend thought it was a turtle at first the way it was fighting.

There are alot of folks that enjoy eating them once you get past their ugly looks. I still prefer walleye over those ugly things any day.

I heard that snakeheads were excellent to eat even though they were ugly as sin. However, bowfin are not so good to eat.

    • Old Yamaha 30hp tuneup - buy parts online?

      I have neglected my Yamaha 30hp (1991?) for awhile now and its running fine but is due for some TLC. I hit all the grease points in the spring and fall but other details are due. I change the lower gear oil twice a year since I bought it used over 5 years go. My first oil change was a "milkshake" and I thought the seals were shot but its been clean since so I will keep the constant gear oil changes every few months for a cheap preventive measure if it needs it or not.The Yamaha C30Q is over

    • Getting that big bass?

      Hi all. I have a friend with a cottage on a private lake just north of Bancroft. It's a small lake full of largemouth and every year he sends out a pic of his big catch which looks to be around 7lbs.

I'm hoping to target one of the trophy size fish, so my question is.....what lure and technique do you suggest for that big bass? I went to Cabela's and t

    • Fly In to Old Post Lodge

      Just got back from a fly in to Old Post Lodge On Lake St Joseph near Pickle Lake. First time up there this early. Usually go in July when it's warmer. Fishing was amazing. The guide put us on Walleye and Pike very day. Didn't seem to matter where we went we caught fish. I walked to the back of the island the lodge is on and fished off the rocks. Caught and released 35 Walleye in 1 1/2 hours. Best ever back there. Was cold a few days in the morning but we dressed for it. Definitely a great place
