    I took my son and his friend out bowfishing to Alum Creek lake at night since I got my bowfishing rig done. We shot lots of carp and seen lots of differnt species of fish. It is amazing the fish you get to see at night. Lots of bass, saugeye, channel catfish and a 4' muskie in a weed bed. But the biggest fish I seen was a flathead cursing pass the boat just on the edge of the lights. It's head was as wide as a basketball and real brown. All the fish we seen was in 3 foot and less water. It was a fun night.
