Hey, I wanted to put this out to every one catching bowfin. I see many of you using gloves and wanted to let you all know about a gripper for $20. I got one (Model EC15), love it, and has made landing my bowfin a lot easier. I'm not affiliated with the company - I just found an economy tool that also weighs up to 15 lbs! Check out the review done by Tackle Tour. It beats a glove! Here's the Lipper website.
