Anyone do any bowfishing in the area? This will be my first year of attempting it. Looks like TONS of fun. Just wondering if there are any good stories/tips/tricks that would be good to read/know/keep in mind.
I've never bowfished myself, but last year I saw 2 young guys walking the edge of the creek looking for carp, I imagine its all just sight fishing. I aked them what the regulations/city ordinance were for carrying a bow and arrow in a city park? They didn't know and didn't seemed to concerned about it. I was wondering if anyone here knew the answer to that? With my luck, I'd be afaid if I did, I'd end up "assuming the position" at gunpoint by one of our cities finest!
You need to contact your city officials and ask them if you can and where to legally uncase and shoot a bow. Most places in the city you can't.
The season opens up today so I might try and spot a few while walking the river and shorlines of lake Bemidji. My dad and I have figured out that the water needs to get above 50 degrees on our lake in Aitkin before they start spawning (so we have a while to wait).
People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
