Had a BLAST.

My very first shot was at a buffalo.
Drilled it.
Will post a pic tomorrow.

Grand total for me was one buffalo, one asain and four gar.
Man had two asain, one buffalo, one grinnel and 3 gar.

Had a ball.
The fish just weren't in there like they have been but I had plenty of shot opportunities.

Took a blind shot at a swirl, where several asain carp were on my very last shot.
No clue what I hit but my arrow is still there.

Line was getting a little worn but I didn't re-tie it and it broke on me.

Oh well, part of playing the game I suppose.

Bedtime, I am tired.
Took a spill walking down the concrete when we first got there, that didn't do my knee or my hip any good either.

night night \:D

The buffalo weighed probably 15 pounds and the asain was about the same.
All the gar were smaller, probably 5 pounds each.
Man caught one gar that went about 10.

This is my very first bowfish shot and the only pic we took.

You should have stopped after the first shot!

Looks like fun!

Just wonder how many pounds of fish have been caught at the old Reelfoot spillway?
Nice fish. \:\) You know you might fit the local's description of a gum booter.

No telling Hawk, no telling.

I may be a gum booter but I saw a couple "locals" go diving in that water pulling up logs so they could get the treble hooks off them.

Yeah, I will take gum booter any day.

I lived not far from there for about 2yrs. Definately a different world lol. But there are some nice folks down that way also. Cant believe they were diving for treble hooks. No telling whats in that water.

And congrats on the fish \:D
