Jeremy was just giving me a hard time. Guess they should have been posted on the bowfishing forum, but they were shot with trad bows.......[8D]

In case anyone is wondering, these were originally posted on the trad bowhunting board. That's not me in the pics--it's my bud Dan and the son of a mutual friend, TJ. Dan and TJ both stuck the big carp (47" long, and over 50#), but TJ's arrow pulled out. Dan (obviously) got it in the boat.

The fish in the picture are: Carp (6), Gar (2), Drum (9), Buffalo (1), and Shad (1). The shad is kinda hard to see--it's pushed up against the belly of the buffalo.

These were all shot at night on the Tenn-Tom Waterway in MS, near Beaver Lake (between locks D and E, I think). Not the most fish we've ever been in, but the most big ones in one trip--the biggest carp, drum, and buffalo I've ever seen were arrowed on this trip. We had a redneck rig, but it worked great. A portable generator hooked up to work lights that were tied to conduit let us see plenty well enough to shoot. Funny thing is the weather was looking so bad we almost didn't go out--cloudy and too much wind for bowfishing. We got on the water and the wind died down some--well worth the trip!

Got plans to try a new place Saturday after next--word is that the big carp in these pics is just average size where we are going. We'll see!

I was just wondering what do you do with all those fish!!! Do you eat them?? or use them as bait on trot lines?? Just curious. Wish there was water in KS to try that.

Honestly, we feed them to the gators. These are all termed "junk fish" under the MS game regs--not many people even try to eat them. I'm gonna' try a gar if we get back to the truck in time, or if I can remember to bring some ice. Heard a recipie once for cookin carp. Get a big pot of boiling water, some onions, taters, carrots, and a 2' long 2x4. Tie the carp to the board, put it all in the pot, and boil for 15 minutes. Take the pot off the fire, take the fish off the board, throw the fish away and eat the board. They do make good fertilizer for the garden--Dan's sister buried the big one in hers--should be a fine stand of 'maters there next year. Not legal to shoot game fish in MS--have to pass on bass, crappie, walleye, etc.

We are just population control--they are of no value to the fishermen, and I reckon they all breed like crazy. Did see how to get the meat from a gar without getting all the bones on a Muzzy bowfishin video, but a fellow I talked to just today tried eating gar once and said it was pretty nasty. I'll eat turtle, even stingray, but Good Lord willin' I won't ever get so hungry that I'll eat a drum or buffalo. It's basically like huntin pararie dogs or coyotes, just on the water.

It is a shame you can't shoot some good eating. But I guess those are the rules. Keep having fun!
