havent been on the forum much lately because ive been doing alot of bowfishing at night and work during the day. Tired all the time but definitely worth it. Placed 4th in the first tournament of the year with 406 pounds of fish total. Have another tournament coming up next weekend. Anyway heres some pics for ya of course im not in any of them because im always behind the camera. I have videos too but i have yet to figure out how to get them up.

are there site holes?/ stabilizer hole?....if not there are plenty of "tape on" setups for recurves. Send me a message if you need to know where to get one. there are a couple big bowfishing suppliers out there that will set you up alot cheaper than your local archery shop.

Sorry redcoon, fishstick hasn't been on WAT for about a year and half. You probably won't get an answer. I miss his reports from the wilds of NW New Jersey. Quite the fish sticker and fox snarer!!

Very nice.
I love the boat. My son and I have done a little of that, but not at night.
You are really set up!!

hoosier-traper, we use a small coffee can , cut and taped on the riser, with florescent construction string.
0 cost and they work flawlessly. It works way better than most store bought.

( I can sent ya pics )

I tried to no avail. Plus I don't think TrapperKD would lift the sentence. I stayed in contact with him for a long time but haven't heard from him in months.

I would doubt he joined PETA and I don't visit other trapping sites, so I wouldn't know about what he has done on them.

He would go after PETA if he met her.
Might find him on Trapperman forum but that is one dangerous site , be careful .

Bowfishing sounds fun. Those were some BIG fish. (At least for around here. All I ever catch is the occasional brook trout

I think the chances of fishstick joining PETA is about as likely as me getting on a Russkie rocket and going to the space station. Not likely :) !!!
