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.
