My son wants to get into bowfishing carp this year. I had fun doing it growing up along the Mississippi back in the 80's. I would always toss the killed fish back into the water and let the current take it away. What do you do with the fish nowadays? We would be bowfishing from a boat. Do you bring a big cooler to toss them in?

I do a little bowfishing myself. the first fish I ever arrowed was 25 lbs. huge mother.

I go to school at UMD, and simply cant wait to hit the sucker run. MMMM smoked sucker.

as for what to do with them. smoke the small ones, the suckers are supposed to be great smoked, which Is what I plan to do this spring. For fish like gar, I leave them alone. I dont like to kill and waste.

a few good uses for carp if you arent going to eat them.

1- garden fertilizer. kepp the dogs out though!

2-give them away. after shooting them out of the river, lots of people will tak them, Ive noted that the europeans especialy love'em.

3-use them for bait in a crawfish trap.

4- stick them in your enemies car. great prank for the 1st.

Hey cadwick,

I started bow fishing a couple year ago and I think it is a pretty cool sport to get into if your a archery hunter. Some buddies and I bow fish for carp and suckers all the time, But I don't eat those nasty things. smirk.gif

Ralph you sure about that? I know you cant use them as live bait.


Yep! Page 10 of the 2007 MN regs:

Using whole or parts of game fish, goldfish, or carp for bait is unlawful.

    • Good yo hear from you again!  Hope your search for property goes well and your time in stand is fruitful.
    • Nice pics jbell! That is a nice yellow garden spider you got there.
    • I had a nice size garden spider on my garage door. It stayed there about 3 weeks. Had a mate who I assume did his business and met his doom. I finally needed to open the door so I safely caught it and let it go in the woods near our house.  Her body is about an inch long. Probably about 3 inches total.       
    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
