  1. I can bring the boat and bows if someone's bringing biscuits and gravy ;). If the the euro guys will bait the hole I'll let them fish from the boat and enjoy some B&G
  2. Limit is 20 on "Carp" but if you read further into it further explains. Personally as stated earlier I'd support a limit and half of that ;). "Goldfish, bighead carp, common carp, grass carp, and silver carp may be possessed in any number and do not count in the daily or possession limit. Bighead carp, common carp, grass carp, and silver carp that jump from the water into a boat or onto land may also be taken and possessed in any number."
  3. State bowfishing tourney this based out Warsaw, I'm sure they would love to have you attend.
  4. Well for us down in the southwest part of the state it's because my boy probably shot only one ;). Most of what we see are commons and gar so that's what is targeted and for the record I have no issue with imposing a lower limit on them especially with the growing popularity, tournament, and guides out just about every night. CarpOflage ;). Cant leave out the gar ;).
  5. Awsome stories and great pics BH.
  6. Recieved a email from the MDC fisheries biologist that collected the bighead from me and based off the vertebrae analysis (attached pic) they estimate the age of the fish to be 14 to 16 years old. They also thought since Bull Shoals is oligotrophic, that they expect this fish to be slower growing than those from the Mississippi River or more fertile systems.

    Big head carp

    Thank you Mojorig. One of those topics that could of went into 1 of 4 categories (General Fishing, Upper BS, Conseravtion Issues, and/or Carp) decided to stick with the general discussion page as it would probably get more looks.
  8. That it would be.
  9. The rumor is that the golf course is somewhere near Roaring River and had them in their ponds and may have washed out during last year's flooding. May never know if that's where it came from or from someones bait bucket years ago.
  10. There's a few goldfish/koi swimming around in BS and maybe a few less ;).
  11. The fish has been handed off to the MDC Fishery Biologist this afternoon. Thank you Mojorig passing on the info to Nathan, he emailed me first thing this and drove from West Plains to pick it up. Had a good conversation with him before loading up the fish and seemed genuinely interested and concerned with the find andwants it passed on that if anymore are seen, caught, or shot to report it.
  12. Tri lakes rod and reel in Forsyth.
  13. Lol, just replied to your FB message. Wanted to make sure it was someone legit
  14. Don't know about that ;). Like shooting big fish but we can do without these. Also, probably get flack from other bowfishers but wouldn't mind seeing lowered limits on on the other species that allowed.
  15. Email sent to the MDC fisheries biologist over Bull Shoals.
