Cole 23lb carp.jpg

My son and I are still new, (under 3 months) into bowfishing and we have a great time together! For Dad (me) this is the most important part!
He shot this 23lb common on Friday night. Not a beast, but a respectable fish for the Mississippi up here in MN.

Cool! I have never seen a carp that big down here. Buffalo, yes, but not our carp. Looks like the bugs must have been out too, with that face cover on him!

Congrats,

Bisch

Bisch... Go to Toledo.

Congrats to both of y'all. I love how he is hugging that thing. He ain't scared of fish slime. Just crazy to see him in a jacket. The truck say 102 right now.

We were the longer stuff to keep the skiters away! It will normally get cool enough in MN to be OK with this at night.
Also he was not afraid to get the slime that way because he could not hold onto it any other way! Ha... I kept trying to have him hold it like a bass, but he just could not get it into place! :laugh:

Nice fish! What part of the Mississippi do you shoot? If you ever get into tournaments theres some great tournaments in the Wabasha-Trempealeau area
