Man went back to reelfoot Last night and whacked them pretty good.
They killed 18 and man killed 16 of those. \:D

The guy he went with broke his nock on the second shot he took.

Anyway, here are some pics of two fish.
I call these common carp but the short fat one looks like a buffalo, but honestly I really don't know.

Believe it or not they weighed within 3 pounds of each other.
The long one was 22 pounds and the short fat one was 19 according to my scale.

Close up of short fat one:


Close up of the long one:


Both. They are slightly discolored due to being in a cooler of ice all day.


Their entire pile from last night.


Not too shabby I don't think for using headlights and shooting from the bank.
Guess we are headed to Final Flight to get him a Muzzy XD reel.
Thanks SMH, you costing me money !

I believe the long one is the bigmouth buffalo and the short one is the small mouth buffalo. the smallmouth buffalo's mouth is suppose to point with the bigmouth pointing down, I have never caught a bigmouth and didn't think they were that stream lined but I guess they are.

The shorter one is a buffalo and the longer one is a small white amur or better known as grass carp

Wow !
That's cool man.


I notice the tobaggan,,,, man asked me last night if you could bowfish in the winter.
Told him I had no clue.

Other than the obvious (deer season) is bowfishing any good in the fall / winter?
