Got setup with my bass fishing partner, cdtac1, from here on tndeer and he set me up to do some bowfishing. I've been wanting to try it for awhile, and now we got to go. I didn't have my hopes up as I knew it can be frustrating to hit one at first, but it was a blast. My 2nd shot ever, I center punched a gar!!! I went on to have my share of misses, but connected again as we got into some schools of those Asian Silver Carp that jump up and fly behind the boat. We found them cruising under the surface and let em have it. The breeze and the in and out cloud cover made it tough to see them at times, so we didn't shoot as much as we thought we might, but it was fun, no doubt. I'm hooked!

Here's a couple pics from our short afternoon trip yesterday.

Dude, I have gotten hooked on this big time. We've been wearing them Silver Asian Carp out over here in West TN. I've all but quit my bass fishing here lately, and that's hard to do!

Thanks for the invite!!! We've been wanting to do it at night, but haven't got the setup for it. Yours looks awesome!!
