    Don your brothers best bet would be check with the local wildlife fisheries dept ,to make sure whether it is legal or not ,an if so where . Thats just like me i just got of the phone with the nc marine fisheries office checking on some rules myself for fishing a spot net in saltwater , they are always glad to help you .

    No sir, it is not legal here. Pole and line only for game fish. You can bowfish carp and a few others. Just pole n line for most. HTH

    No jugging or trot lining allowed in Arizona. Bow fishing allowed for carp, grass carp,& buffalo fish. On Lake Pleasant you can bow fish for striped bass, but only hook and line everywhere else in Arizona.
