    I hear ya... I have been keeping track of what we have been doing as far as numbers go so I will have a good log to see when it gets better or worse... you know me a numbers guy... :l really we quit fishing when the barrel is full, I don't like to have to run to the car wash at 2 am to clean out the carp slim... last weekend we went out at 12AM on Sunday Night (really Monday that is why we waited ..lol..had to keep the commandmentsÂ’ ) and thought well we will fish until the sun comes up but that trip didn't last long I was back in bed snuggling with the wife and bulldogge :sp

    do you have any info on the tourny at CJ..? I got a recurve so I can fish that tourny now... do they allow reels...? sure wish it was a night shoot :l funny how 90% of all bowfishing tourneys are at nite.:dv

    well that counts me out... got the comp that same day... see it should have been a night tourny...:l but I don't think traditional fish-stalking is included in a Mud Boat with a shooting deck and lights count...

    so what is traditional fish-stalking Bryce.. is that wading...?

    I doubt that anyone would ever say a word about you gafting a carp. I think the only person within 200 miles of here that thinks they are a big treasure is you. Including F&G. And those guys think everything is a treasure. Heck for 3 stupid shore birds they think they are worth $400. haha and People think Quail or chukar is rare for dinner. :l

    not anymore they told me to slit them and let'em sink they don't want anymore to feed the birds of prey :l

    no big deal anyways these carbon arrows with 3 barb tips work well on picking them out of the water I just have to get them in the barrel before I wack'em with the bishop...:l
