Got my introduction to bowfin on the fly yesterday. 3 hook-ups, one nice 9lb fish landed and spooked a few others along with countless huge carp. Anyone have time with these fish on the fly?

Have you been targeting those carp? Can you sight fish to them? Are the areas you're in accessible by canoe or do you need a boat?

In about another month the Bowfin will be populating our cove. They can be fun on a flyrod when they are in the mood. I haven't gotten down to your river yet.
