Hit the carp spawn good on the Hill Saturday. We had a ball, great time with some good friends. We shot until we were wore slap out. We completely quit shooting gar early on, coulda killed a hundred of 'em. Even got out of the boat for awhile and did some spot-and-stalk wading in the grass, which was a ton of fun. Best part, the primitive wooden bow accounted for more fish than the compound this trip for once. ::ke: :D

I tried to eat one once. That was enough. The whole fish tastes like that red streak in a striper or big catfish that I always cut out. Those are now happily fertilizing sawtooth oaks and persimmons in food plots. :)

Gar are a different story. I think gar are delicious.

Nchb,what would be a good economical bow fr a youngster to start shooting fish with
I would hit the pawn shops and see if you can find an old fiberglass recurve of some sort. Sometimes you can get them cheap, if they're not a vintage Bear or some such.

I remember camping out at Wingate's lodge every Easter, and at night there would be a whole lot of boats with noisy motors , platforms and a whole bunch of lights going through the shallows bowfishing. We never tried it, as all we had was a 17' Bass tracker, but I did do some bowfishing at the Eufaula NWR. All I ever got was gar. Once I got two with one arrow.....
