    Anybody have any information or tips on bowfishing for grass carp or big head carp in sections of river below Yankton. When I went to school at USD many moons ago I lived on river by Goat Island and did a lot of bowfishing. I would like to make a return trip to relive old memories.

    I now understand that grass carp and big heads have really taken hold and may offer some good bowfishing opportunities. Anybody have some information?

    I found a link on how to dress grass carp and evidently they are VERY good. I used to smoke my carp and buffalo.

    Here is a link to site of dressing and preparing grass carp. I would assume it would also pertain to big heads.
