Bowfishing Results

1 post in this topic

The winning team at Sunday’s Bowfishing Association of Illinois state championship out of Henry checked in with 4,150 Illinois River fish in less than 12 hours.

Reports Tom Davis of Henry:

There were 28 boats, 71 adults and 3 kids (16 and under). Total prize money was $2,955 including $500 donated by Innerloc. We had around two hundred door prizes probably totaling around $2,000 in value. The Innerloc big fish was awarded to a 16.3 lb Bighead Carp. The top team in the numbers category had over 4,000 fish. The top team in the Big 30 category (weight up to 30 fish – 10 silver carp max.) was 216.5 lbs. There were four places paid in the numbers category and four in the Big 30 category and 4 awards for individual big fish categories plus the $500 Innerloc fish (biggest fish taken with an Innerloc fishing point, excluding silver carp).

There were 12,764 fish counted from 11 boats. The other 17 boats probably averaged at least 200 fish. Well over 15,000 silver carp were taken out of the river. Best guess, I would say the total was 17,000 to 18,000.

Ha,now that had to be a mess! ttg

    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
