Pitched them one by one into the fan of the airboat on the way back to the dock.

On a serious note, we disposed of them properly. Why? Need some dead fish?

I'm not dissin' bowfishing (I do it myself), but I wish there was a better way. To kill such a grand fishing resource and chunk it is such a waste.

But I'm impressed with your results - helluva day (or night)!

gil, the hog is an excellent hunting resource, but I don't want it on my property. I do see what your saying, but the truth is, regardless if the carp is fun to catch on rod and reel, they are a destructive, invasive species that cause lots of problems for our native fish, wildlife and plants.

I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Would you rather catch (not eat) a big fish on a fly rod that is phenomenally smart and spooky and picky and will rip your shoulder off or a smaller fish like a bass or bluegill that is much easier to catch and puts up a relatively weak fight?

I like catching them all, but for me, carp are just more challenging and more fun to catch. It would be a shame to skewer 200 largemouth or smallies and chunk them on the bank but no better or worse than wasting a phenomenal resource like carp.

In a different way, it's a "phenom"enal resource. Despite the bowfishing carnage, it's still the gift that keeps on giving. We don't even have to stock them. I hope the resource can keep on keepin' on.

what damage do common carp do here? And buffalo are native, I bet you shot equally as many of those. I'd like to get a bow fishing rig and shoot a few myself, but have more respect for what you kill. 200 fish sounds like a great night though! Glad you don't fish my waters. I enjoy the carp picking up a bait and running drag off my reel too much to have people shoot em in my fishing holes.

I'm not weighing in either way except to say..In Michigan's Upper Peninsula they smoke carp, suckers and of course game fish and they are quite tasty I hear. I've had smoked sucker and they weren't too bad...never tried the carp.

I don't have respect for any invasive species that does harm to our ecosystem. Read up on how destructive they are (too busy getting he blood off my bows, boat and gear to type it all out right now) especially in our shallow lakes. And no, you don't want me shooting your fishing holes, I'll shoot every invasive fish that swims by the boat. Glad your not a betting man, we shot a total of 2 buffalo that night. It's ok to enjoy fishing for them, and I get it, but do some research on the impact they have on our waters before you "save them all for rod and reel". Save all the Asian carp while your at it, they put up one hell of a fight on rod and reel as well.

Kill the silver and bighead carp, their damage is obvious and they aren't worth fishing for because they do not bite a bait. I'm surprised you only killed 2 buffs, around here the buffalo far outnumber the carp and I don't see the carp doing any harm here. I'm talking about common carp, not silver or bighead or wild hogs. No they don't belong here but I don't see them hurting my waters and I like fishing for em. Keep shooting em cause I doubt you will be in my fishing hole, it's mainly just a creek.

Showmehorns and I hardly ever agree but here I say as long as its legal do what you do. Would I kill 200 carp or any fish in one night probably not but who are we to judge.

Gil, I really do understand your love of catching them and applaud you for stepping outside the box as a angler, but it doesn't change the fact, for me, they are still a invasive , destructive species in our waters. Keep catching them, and I'll keep killing them....In large numbers!

I kill ALL invasive species, and will not base that decision on how well they pick up a bait, or how hard they fight at the end of a pole. People more intelligent then you and i have spent millions of dollars studying the damage caused by ALL INVASIVE SPECIES. If they would have put a clause in their findings regarding the common carp, i would not be killing them in massive numbers.

Just remember, just because you don't understand how they affect our ecosystem, does not mean they need a free pass because they bite a dough ball.

a big fish on a fly rod that is phenomenally smart and spooky and picky


hahaha, yeah boy there so smart and spooky that they will let you shoot at'em 4 or 5 times then swim into the trolling motor.
I say whatever floats your boat, but don't justify an invasive species because they offer nothing, and I mean aboslutely NOTHING but a different angling opportunity. If the state went by that theory alone, there would be no food chain AT ALL!!!!
Just ask the brook trout how well the INVASIVE rainbow trout has helped them out in the brookies NATIVE streams!!!!
Yeah, there fun to catch, I will never doubt that. And more than likely, they will never be wiped out. But don't confuse your personal enjoyment as any benefit at all to an ecosystem. Don't get me wrong, bowfishing alone, will never wipe out a invasive in a large body of water, but at least we're not allowing them to reproduce once we have enjoyed the resource.
Catman, you have to understand, that just because you don't see anything happening, it does'nt mean it never happens...The TWRA, wildlife and fisheries all over the country, would be in a very sad state if everyone went by that theory.

Y'all show me some research on the damage caused inthe southeastern US by common carp. I don't doubt they are bad for the ecosystem, but nobody has offered up any research to back their opinions.

Rukiddin, don't take this comparison the wrong way, but bow fishing for carp might be like spotlight shooting deer at night, in the sense that its easy and the animal looks stupid when you do it but is actually quite intelligent. I've bait fished and fly fished for carp and they make bass look like stupid, reaction-striking fish that anyone can catch (and anyone can catch a bass, they are easy).

Yes they are invasive and shoot as many as you want. And I'm still going to keep fishing for them and releasing them to fight another day.

If you can't find the facts your looking for online, we shouldn't even be having this conversation. Take some time and read up. Meanwhile, I'm going to go save some armidillos, they make bada$$ jogging partners.

I did some research as you suggested, since you provided none. Most of the negative effects were on wetlands regarding waterfowl migration as well as water turbidity and game fish populations. Most of the examples I found were in lakes and wetlands in the North or Midwest. Around here I see clear streams and slightly murky streams and carp and buffalo but carp do not dominate from what I have observed, except in a few mud bottom pools in some streams. Native buffalo dominate almost all the waters that I fish, if not gar, bass or sunfish in some places. I see that carp are a problem for many waters but I fail to see the big problem where I fish. The carp are not everywhere to be found, clogging up the rivers. I have to look to find deep holes that hold carp and that's where I fish for them. Everywhere else I wade and fish mainly for bass. I have seen pictures and videos of spillways that are literally so full of carp the ducks can walk on them, but I have never seen anything close to that in any place I have fished. I really think the higher populations and negative impacts of carp depend on where and what kind of water body the carp are in. I can spend all day catching a dozen or two bass and then sit down on a lawn chair for a few hours and catch 2 or 3 carp. That's how I like to fish often in the summer... wade for bass and sit on the bank with a campfire fishing for carp and catfish.

One of my points was that I love carp - I love catching carp, I love the fact that carp will rip your shoulder off, I love the challenge of a species that is much more difficult to catch than most of our sportsfish. Anyone wanting to make me feel guilty for that is seriously going to have to come up with another argument.

The subject of the thread has changed several times, but I'd like to go back to my point. It's a shame to waste the resource. If we're going to kill the noble beast, let's find a use for it. If you could easily sell carp, then there probably wouldn't be an invasive situation (especially on the Asian species).

I don't have the answer. Maybe some of you smart(azz) fellers do.

Gil, I'll never discredit how fun they are to catch on a rod and reel. I agree 100%. I have a friend that loves to fish for'em, but he will also shoot one in a heartbeat.
The problem is not necessarily there is not a commercial buyer, its more of matter the cost/labor vs price of fish. There is a pretty good market for common carp in the Northeast. But commercial fishing is a very labor intensive job and if your only getting 3-5 cents/pound, its hard to justify it.
Buffalo are commercially fished about everywhere they exist. Truth be told, if you have ever eat fishsticks, at some point or another, you have probably eat buffalo.
Here's my beef with carp fishing....There is a group called the "Carp Anglers Group" that are nothing more than eco-terrorists in my book. They have knifed bowfisherman's truck tires, damaged bowfishing boats, spraypainted trucks with threats and threatened and attempted to harm bowfishermen. All this over a stupid, nasty invasive fish??? I know its not right to lump all of'em together, but I have absolutely NO RESPECT for the CAG. If I catch'em doing that to my rig.....well, I'll probably be in jail after its all said and done. Maybe ya'll are'nt members, and thats awesome if your not. All groups have their "bad apples", I know that...But after what I've seen'em do, with their level of extremism, I can't help but group'em. I welcome anybody to prove me wrong. I hate'em. Gil, even you have to admit...Diehard carp fishemen are a querky/crazy/derranged group. lol.

Remind me to never join the Carp Anglers Group! I am a carp angler and would be ashamed to be of a group that vandalizes other fishermen's trucks and boats.

We had a "carp angler" threaten 3 grown men in my boat one evening. Even chunked a rock the size of a baseball that missed me by a few inches. I could tell by the way he threw the rock, he had a hop-hoo somewhere hidden below his belly button, so I opted to let him by with the first toss, but after the second toss, I'd had enough. I picked up the second rock and chunked a fastball that would have ended in certain death had it not curved from the sheer speed. He was really crazy and derranged...until I pulled the front of the boat up on the bank. At that point his hoo-hoo flaps spread and he flew off into woods. First thing we noticed was a fat CAG sticker on his tackle box...that he left behind.

By the way, I had never heard of CAG. I've been known to bowfish, too. I use the meat to bait my trail cams. It's awesome for attracting cats.

Like ...

That looks like it would be a blast. I have alwayse wanted to try bow fishing. I would so give some gas money for a trip out with someone. I just don't want to get hooked on it, I have enough hobbies now.
