Basically, just no parking hardly at all at Nameoki, and where would you launch? The closest launch to shoot bigheads would be where? I would guess you are looking at 15 miles away...maybe? I will provide whatever info I can. And who does MABO consist of? thanks.

Its a trailer event, we would only gather and weigh in at Namioki village, or somewhere else, lookin for a location. Contestants can trailer where ever they want to fish.

Nameoki has no parking for a bunch of guys that that are bowfishing. I would say the wal-mart or lowes on route 3 would be best.

If it is "a bighead" shoot, there are zero bigheads at horseshoe. And that lake will only shoot a few boats at a time, not lots of great places. Also, no night shooting there park closes at 10pm.

There is a big parking lot at the public ramps at Piasa Creek in Grafton and at Pere Marquette. Depending on the water level also ramps by the Atlon Bridge.
