One way to get mud minnows for bait is to sink a six pack of drained beer cans all strung together with strong string and then sunk completely and tied to something in a mucky backwater of a river. They like to camp out in the cans. If timing is right quickly pull out the cans and you've got free bait. Come to think of it, they do kind of have the profile of a bowfin.

DNR is saying it's a central mud minnow.

Looks like a little bowfin. Did it have teeth? Or a long dorsal fin?
