Early Season Bowfishing

This last week we had one of the nicest days yet in the year with temperature in the low 60’s so me and my friend Matt decided to take the canoe down the river. Matt only had about two and a half hours to do our small trip,

so we picked out a 2.5-mile stretch of the Mullet River to go down. When we made the decision to do this stretch of the river we knew that it wouldn't take the full two and a half hours for us to take the trip. I knew that my Matt had never been bowfishing before so I thought that it would be a good chance to introduce him to it. So I grabbed my bowfishing bow, and we headed out to the river.

When we got to the river we loaded up the canoe and started out down the river. I had my Matt sit in the front of the canoe with the bow so that he would have the best opportunity for a shot. The river is still high from the snow melt and spring rain which mad it easy for us to navigate the river. When we would get to spots where the river had slower moving water I had Matt stand up and get ready to shoot.

Soon we had the dust trails of carp going everywhere. Matt Started taking shots at the carp with no success, but he was getting excited. Soon all the carp had fled from the area we were in so we continued down the river. Not to far down stream we got into some more but with no success. He was getting closer to hitting them but not close enough.

As we continued down the river we continued to have shooting but had yet to have the arrow make contact with a fish. As we were getting close to our take out point I was start to worry if Matt was going to get one that day. But then it happened the arrow finally made contact with a fish. With the fish fighting at one end of the line and Matt pulling it in from the other end, it was a great time and a great way to end the day.
