Hello fella's,

Last summer I got into bowfishing. Shooting carp/buffalo with a bow and arrow. It was awesome!! If you haven't tried it, you need to! I am wondering if anyone is interested in becoming a part of the Bowfishing Challenge. It begins May 1st and runs through August. There is a $600 payout for the "big fish" and a $1200 payout for the biggest weight of 5 fish. If anyone would like any information on this just let me know! It's a blast!

I have never tried bow fishing, but I had the pleasure about 3-4 years ago of watching the DNR confiscate the .22 of a man who was sitting on top of a bridge shooting rough fish and letting them float on down the river.

What does it cost to enter?

Ya know......it's idiots like that, which ruin hunting and fishing.

Tournament Challenge thing sounds like a blast and i'm so excited! I'm trying to let other people know about it...because not many do.

The entry fee for 4 months for the "biggest" carp is $25. Very Cheap! And the entry for the "Big 5" is $50! There's a lot of money to be had if enough people enter! If you would like a registration form let me know!

Hey Icenut, sounds like fun. just wondering what a guy does with a rough fish after you shoot it? Is it illegal to leave em lay? are you supposed to eat them? Use them for fertilizer? Smoke them?
If a guy entered this contest, how do you enter your fish and where can you hunt for them?

Nineballs,

It is a lot of fun! Do it once and you are hooked! I promise. It is illegal to leave them lay or throw them back. I keep them and smoke em. Or use them for fertilizer.

This contest begins May 1 and goes through August. You can shoot them anywhere in MN. You have to check-in your fish at a specific area. In the Rochester area...Marty at Archery Headquarters does it. He also has registration materials......so do i. If you want one ......let me know! It's a lot of fun.....you should try it!

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake.

      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.

      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps

      I am looking for a LED Rope lights to hang in my clam ice house for fishing at night.  I know you can purchase a light bar from clam, but I am thinking there must be a cheaper way.  I am looking for suggestions.  Please provide the brand.  Thanks, Mike

      The white hockey tape, then black electric tape over.  The hockey tape by itself gets too wet for me. The black electric tape sheds water better than the hockey tape.  After a few yrs of use the black will leave a gunky residue on the rod if used by itself Have also tried the reel bands, not a big fan of them when fighting a big fish.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!

      Hockey tape for me.  Bought a roll 10 years ago and probably have another 10 years left in it, unless I go on a shopping spree for rods/reels!

      Finally got out there Saturday after wanting to for almost 10 years! After reading all the pointers on here and looking at maps we gave it a try. Ended up catching around 15 between the 2 of us in about 4 hrs biggest being about 6lbs. Had a blast and will definitely do it again!  Oh and you're not kidding about a lite bite I think only one actually pulled the bobber  under!

      I was on Turtle Lake.  I've always found the clarity good there although I also haven't seen a boatload of pike.  Centerville was awful a couple of weeks ago as was Peltier although they both can change in a few weeks.  Sorry I didn't reply sooner but I was up north seeing almost 50 fish in two days on a small lake west of Bemidji.  Nice clear water there and pike from 10 to 38 inches long.

      Just fished Potato for the first time this winter. Found walleyes in 15 feet of water off the mid lake humps during the day/late afternoon. Had the camera down and saw plenty of eyes but couldn't get them to bite. Was wondering if this lake is more of a night bite.
