That's a question on my mind - when do bowfin spawn? Maybe we should move
this to the general list. Can you respond over there? Anyway, I would
have serious doubts that two inch fish in May were spawned that spring.
They would have had to have a _very_ early start to get that big by May. I
would guess they were young of the previous year, perhaps spawned late in
the summer. Any other theories? When do bowfin normally spawn? I guess I
was thinking they're a warm water spawner.
