    I thought about it myself a few times. What species are legal? I moved to PA from CT about 8 years ago and up there the only legal species were suckers, carp and eels. I'd like to see someone bowfish an eel. Even Robin Hood would be impressed if someone got an eel I think.

    i have done it a couple times with some friends but it is a lot harder than it looks i have only got like 5 or 6 since i have been going but we go for carp during early spring it has been the most promising
