Cody, you pretty much need to specifically be fishing for them to catch them most of the time. I didn't say impossible, just unlikely from my experience with them.

If their population stays in check, they aren't usually that big of a problem.

A lot of people confuse them with snakehead, which is a true trash fish. Invasive species, very aggressive. A bowfin doesn't seem particularly aggressive until you hook it, or otherwise aggravate it.
