Yeah I have been out 3 times. It opened June 1st. They are opening all lakes to nigth bowfishing starting August 1st. (As long as there aren't any "weapon discharge" ordinances) The night stuff is the way to go!

I've had crappy luck at night so far. Apparently these northern fish didn't get the memo that its supposed to be better. At least the wind tends to go down after dark. Give me a sunny still 80 degree day anytime.

I've had some friends go out at night in the Mankato area and have been really putting the screws to them.

I haven't been out except on the river, there is only a few lakes open to night bow fishing in the Kato area so that should narrow it down.

Shot at a lake near Faribo for the first time under the lights fri night/sat morning and all i can say is unbelievable, all fish(carp) were shot in 1' or less of water and the action was non-stop

I don't think i will ever shoot during the day again

    • Lol at 3 I think I got a little time
    •   Please try and get her to know the difference as soon as you can!  Just saying.
    • You cant be serious, can you?  I think you got that backwards Dave, much like waiting until you become diagnosed  before you open your eyes to bad habits.   Hindsight is always 20/20, guys like you are the reason i take the measures i do now. Im not ripping on you for not knowing because its easy to become unaware of the damage your actually doing to yourself. Learning from others mishaps sticks a lot more than reading about some new trend.
    • Unfortunate your taxidermist could not do all three in a  nice natural  of setting because my guess is it was a female and her two kits. That's just judging from the pictures of course. Would have been a nice family photo, so to speak.
    • Thanks Big Dave. I looked through this stuff and really think a turkey hunt would be something different.  That Mexican bird would be a cool deal.   We will see, I have time!
    •       Because $$$$$$$$$....   You know, free speech and all that..
    • Why not get rid of the cozy relationship that the hospitals,insurance companies, medical device and drug suppliers have and open the market up to competition.    Prime example. You have sleep apnea. Go to the clinic and get a mandated sleep study in their room which costs about $4k for the night.  In an open market private companies could do this for a fraction of the price.   Once you test positive they give you a prescription to buy a machine at their facility and the cost ranges from $1600 to $3600.   You can buy the exact product online for $400-700. But the clinics and doctors don't want you buying there for obvious reasons.    Just one example buy this is what I would like to see changed.  
    • The Rum River is fun anywhere from St. Francis to Anoka. Probably fun north of there to, but I've never done it. It's been quite a few years since I've been on it, but was all no-wake and assume it still is so you don't have to worry much about big boats. 
    •     Why not pass a law that says politicians can't rake in more than 10 percent of the campaign costs of their highest third party competitor?....       wording
