Dogfish and Bowfin are the same fish.
They're crazy but good for nothin other than the battle.

I've caught about 5 bowfin in my life, one at Burnham Harbor on Lake Michigan, and the rest from the Kankakee River state park. They fight like mad. When you land them, they twist and curl up like an eel or a snake. I think they are supposed to have dangerous teeth, might be toxic, and were in some fish consumption advisories I think. This is not to be confused with the waterdog or "mudpuppy" which also are in the Kankakee River, and used to be common in Burnham and Jackson Harbors on Lake Michigan. I once donated a mudpuppy which was on display at Cook County's "Little Red School House Nature Center" for about 5 or 6 years. It finally died and I was sad.
