Rusty, your fishing post the other day had me scratching my head... I googled it and it turns out, your Drum are nothing like our drum, but they still look fun to catch.
I'm curious, do they have Bowfins in Kansas?
They are quite fun to catch. Every time I catch one I think I've got a catfish. I got one a couple years ago that was close to if not over 20 lbs.
I've never heard of a Bowfin...Maybe they're called something else here?
