Bowfishing Fun!!!
« on: June 08, 2016, 11:27:00 AM »
A buddy and I went bowfishing Monday night on my newly finished bowfishing boat. It was at a small lake near my house which is not the best place to go, but all the other lakes around here were closed due to the flooding from recent rains. We did pretty well, nonetheless!

We got 29 carp and 5 gar between the two of us, and I'll bet we missed at least twice that many!

   

   

This was the maiden voyage for my new boat! Here is a few pics of the boat. I think it turned out pretty well!:

Nice haul, Bisch!  That is some serious light you have.
