Just wondering what happened to everyone on here? is everybody too busy bowfishing to post? The weather here has been sub-par. Almost every weekend it has been raining or I cant go. went out last weekend but had some weird green slime on the water that made it hard to shoot. Only got like 5.

The water down here has been usually high and muddy all year. Another couple weeks of drier weather and it should get right!

Work is kicking my butt as well. It seems it's hard to find good people. I'll be testing the new deck before winter.

I'm getting ready to do some new mod's on my boat, I order more metal, tubeing & a few more lights 48W LED spot lights. Build a light bar that is over the outboard 5 1/2 ft above the gunnels & attaches to them. It will fold down to 3ft @ 45 degrees & fold back up locking with hitch style pins. The 48W Spots will be headlights with 2 10W LED Floods with tinted green to light up the interior of the boat & 2 27W on the outside of the light bar shine off on the sides.

Don make sure to post some Picts thought out the build. I love seeing other people's builds plus it gives good ideas for others. Fed I might need a life jacket seeming as the Asian body wasn't ment to swim that good. Lol I did swim across Fremont,a mile, last year

Been working a lot and all our lakes are so low that they closed the boat ramps. I believe our season is done. I guess it's time to build the hybrid duck boat that I have been planning to build and paint up some old decoys for this duck season.

Sounds like a bad year all around. Kinda a bummer as I was looking forward to killing tons of fish. Didn't get to kill near as many as I would like

It hasn't been a bad year for us as far as killing fish go. we put a little over 3000 in the boat this year with a 123 fish per trip average. we just had a really bad water year

Our year wasn't bad. For a couple weeks during the spawn we were averaging about 100lbs of fish an hour. Some trips we only got a couple fish in the boat. Overall had a fun spring/summer. Threw in the towel last week and now I'm getting ready for waterfowl season.

I only got out a handful of times. A lot of rain on the weekends around here. Maybe got 100 fish total. Hoping to get out a couple more times

The best day I ever had Bowfishing was the BAM state championship. We found a little ditch that connected a little marsh to the bay. The carp were running the ditch to go from the open water to the marsh were they we're spawning. Most if the fish were little, but it was as fast as you could shoot for a little over 2 hours till most of the carp were shot/ scared out. We got 130 of our 170 fish in those 2 hours...then the weather got bad and the last 18 hours were tough.
