Big Heads in Bull Shoals????

Recommended Posts

Guess this answered that question.  20180610_103955.jpg

One thing i love about Bull Shoals is you never know what your going to catch or shoot for that matter ;).  If you'd told me they were in the before yesterday I'd say your crazy but I'd probably believe it but with skepticism.  Fished and bowfished BS from the stateline up for 30 years and this is the first i had seen not only on BS but any area lake for that matter.  Weighed 45 pounds.

Did you arrow it yourself?  If not Since I know nothing of the origin of the photo I am going to be suspicious of it being from Bull Shoals.  Certainly hope it's not at least.

My son put the initial arrow in it and followed up with a second as it was wrapped in the brush.

          Wow John that is a big one. While it is neat you have a target for your fish arrows I feel just lik e the invasive introduced common carp this species does not belong here messing with the ecosystem. Congrads to you and your boy teaming up on the fish. Kill a truckload more if you find them but in all actuality I hope you don't find any more. Just like other introduced critters looks like the cat is out of the bag :( ,

I sent a PM to Mojorig who is an AGFC Bio for the region that contains Bull Shoals.  

Thanks Quill.  I called the fish hatchery this morning hoping maybe a biologist might be in and spoke to the MDC naturalist working and ended up emailing her with pics and measurements of the fish and she is suppose to forward it to the fishery biologist. Told her what I shot and she sounded shocked and asked me if I was sure what it was ;).  Couldn't tell me if they needed the fish or not so still have it in a cooler on ice if they need to examine it.

I hope we don't either.  Although I'm glad we were able to stick it, wouldn't bother me if we never see another one.
