Default First Fish ever with a Bow.

I went bowfishing for the first time last night. Now I see what everyone is talking about its just plain fun. I was using one of my older bows that my dad rigged up for bowfishing. My friend has a pond on his land that his dad put catfish in. Now they don't want the catfish so there trying to remove them all. Last night I managed to arrow five of them all weighing about 6-7lbs. Now I know what I'm going to do with my free time during the off season.

Just wait till you latch on to a 45lb carp or a 180 lb gator gar. Now thats fun
