Default Bowfin on Buzzbait

I had yet to land a Bowfin (“Dogfish”) from my kayak, I’ve hooked into a couple but they have always gotten off whether that be by snapping the line or breaking/popping the hook. They really tend to come out to feed and will chase just about anything around dusk on this lake, I was throwing a black buzzbait around some pads and watched a wake come out behind it. I slowed down my retrieve and then it didn’t take long for my rod to load up…game on!

That was definitely a lake specific comment This was on my cabin lake in Western WI and there are very few Bass/Pike over 2lbs but it has a lot of good sized Bowfin. Around dusk time if you're throwing in the shallows, especially you'll see wakes and it's always the Bowfin coming out to hunt.

Swimbaits? If so, no because they put a hurtin' on a lures/hooks/paint. They have some of the strongest jaws, tons of small but sharp teeth and they roll like a gator.

That just makes the swimbaits look more badass! Get some cheap dyanamos and throw those! I bet they'd hammer them
