    Been doing a bit of bowfishing on the ohio river for those good fer nothing jumping sons of *%$@*$ carp. Never bowfished for them before and am hooked now. Never thought there were that many out there. It was nothing to see over 20 at one time. After we shot the first one we cut him up and put him on the hooks. Stuck 2 rods in the rack in the back of the boat and just while drifting down the middle of the river shooting those slimy things we ended up catching 7 blues between 5 and 15 lbs. I was quickly finding a new favorite bait! Not sure how many we shot but we filled the livewell to a point you had to jump on it to get it to close in about an hour and killed and tossed the rest back for the next 3 hours. Got some pics of the carp but for some reason we didn't take any of the cats....:embarassed::embarassed::embarassed:
