    I took my friends that I got started in bowfishing to Alum Creek Lake. I got there bows together and we had a great night of bowfishing. Here is a few pictures of our trip. The first picture is Big Chessie(Spencer) on the left and Bass911(Jason) on the right with the pile of fish. The next picture is me with the mirror carp(15 lbs.) I shot and the third picture is the pile of fish. These guys are great to fish with and I'm glad I made new friendships with them and gain two more shooters for the bowfishing world. I'm getting them some applications for the BAA.

    Ya all got a pile of fish there! What do ya do with em? I know my grandma would take em from my grandpa and she'd pressure cook em and make home made salmon patties out of em. How do you fix yours? Do you save the scraps for the catfish? Either way ya did real good!-----------pk powell:smile2:

    Great kill, I too would like to have some of your catch if you have to many to use yourself. I would like to make some smoked and pickeled fish if you have to many to use and have the room to freeze them. Let me know and we can hook up so I can pick your leftovers.

    I'm using a 5250 genny running 6- work light housings with 2- 500 watt bulbs in the front and 4- 300 watt bulbs facing out, two on each side. Going though a breaker box with two 15 amp breakers.
