In Florida simply having bass on board while bows are in the boat is a violation. Hard to explain the big holes if they ain't in their lips.

Ummmm, eight pounder last summer by mistake. Pulled arrow out under the water so no one could see. Was swiming with carp. I was almost paniced. If a fish was found with a hole in him they would know who to come to. No one bowfishes here but me.

i think weve all made mastakes n dingy water......thats not a confession.....just saying...... :cool:
I can honestly say I haven't shot a illegal fish yet. I've shot cats thinking they were carp but they are legal to shoot. I've been at full draw on bass, northern pike, and walleye but realized it before I let the arrow fly. (knocking on wood)

weve had alot of close calls with new boys that ive carried wth me....luckly they wasnt sighted n yet !
I tell anyone that goes with me that if they shoot a bass that will be the last arrow they draw back in my boat. Haven't had any problems yet.

I'm a avid catch and release bass fisherman and I cringe anytime I see someone keep a bass.

I eat tons of fish. Perch, bluegill, crappie, and walleye mostly. But I don't see why you would kill such a sporting fish like a bass where there are so many other fish to eat.
