The list of local and alternate names the bowfin is known by is lengthy, but common ones include "dogfish", "mudfish", "grindle" (or "grinnel"),"swamp muskie", "black fish", "cottonfish" "swamp bass", "poisson-castor", "Speckled Cat" "beaverfish", "Cypress trout" and "lawyer". In parts of Louisiana they are called "tchoupique" or "choupique

 I see above that grinnel is a local name, are you sure of your spelling?

Thanks for your time. Got grenal from the net. I have found out that it is all the same. We have lots of the fish in Ms. delta. A man from out of town caught one and wanted to mount it. Its just a trash fish for us. Told him this. He still wants to mount the fish. One mans trash is another mans gold. Should be fun to do.
