im so glad bowfishing is done today...

ill actually have a shot now, without them running around in the river with their boat, spooking, and shooting everything.

Great catches hotpocket! Hopefully with this warmer weather coming I'll be able to get out soon.

Just a reminder to folks to not use this forum to bash on other anglers who are legally harvesting fish. Any further comments on the subject of bowfishing for roughfish should be directed to the Outdoor Discussion forum.

Nice white bass. I seem to catch tons on the rivers. You get some that big on the medium light rod in the spring current and thats a party. Tons of fun.

Those are some pig whities! Those have to be pushing close to the state record for a whitey. 19" and full of eggs?

Those are some huge white bass for sure. I bet they were very close to the state record. Nice catches! Good to see some open water stuff going on finally...

Oh yea! Unlike Walleyes that hit a lure with a tap-tap, A White Bass hits a lure harder then you think a fish that size can. Fun stuff.

Good job!

Are both of these smallmouth buffalo. I think the first is but the second one I was not sure about. Scales were flaking off and very silvery. Maybe the diference is just because of the age of the fish as the first one was much larger.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
