Bow fishing

Made another trip last night. Good sized fish with the biggest going 32'. Three man limit pretty quick, these fish are feeding like crazy right now. Starting to find plenty crabs in the stomachs of the reds. Also seeing more and more crabs as we are bowfishing. Good signs, maybe crabs wil be abundant this year.

Nice haul. Save some for me. lol. I'm building a bowfishing boat from scratch right now, will be another couple of weeks before I can get out there. If you see a brand new 21' bow-boat this summer, come say hello.

Will do
Haha nice! I will be looking. And don't worry there are plenty fish out there. The numbers I'm seeing are outstanding. And the number of smaller fish in the 16' range is through the roof!! The past few trips we have been able to be selective on our fish!

No pics
I dont have any pics of my set up. My boat is only 16 foot and i have a small setup with all halogens at the moments pushing almost 1800 watts. Im going to be switch to hps(high pressure sodium) lights very soon. my buddy has a set up with hps and it penetrates the water like you wouldnt believe. Go to you tube and check out my video called bowfishing madness. We made it a few weeks ago if you have not already seen it. That is my buddys set up with hps.

If your talking about Rodrigue, I'm the one that turned him on to the HPS's when he was still running the halo's. I really like the HPS's, but I couldn't pass up the deal I made on the 8 - 400w metal halides I'm running now.

Nah not Rodrigue. My buddy I've been friends with since we were in primary school. His dad has been bowfishimh with him his whole life and they got me into it. They really know their stuff and have taught me a lot.
