1 of the best fighting fish right there. Try getting them through the ice sometime its a blast. Coarse you'll have to travel for that.
I fish every chance I get and enjoy every time I fish. They call it fishing not catchin

Congrats on the catch. They look like they would be fun to fish for for sure. :)
I also hear they have some good chompers on them, is that true?

I know a couple spots up here on Black Lake where I could just about guarantee a bowfin through the ice.  8)
