In Southern California, there are plenty of carp-filled lakes, and many of them will allow you to bowfish for them. One of the hotspots is Big Bear Lake and in a couple of weeks they will be having their Carp Roundup where teams of two will be able to go out, either by shore or by boat, and try to arrow some carp for prize money. Some of the DIYbowhunter.com guys have participated and said it's a blast. Up to this point I have never tried it, but this year I wanted to give it a shot. After talking with avid bowfishermen like Bill Howard and Tony Catalde, my thirst to arrow a fish has grown.
When I arrived home yesterday there was a box waiting for me and I had a feeling I knew what it was. After carefully cutting the seam of tape, I opened the box to reveal these bad boys. Two new bowfishing kits from Cajun Archery!
|Bowfishing kits from Cajun Archery that have me very excited!|
One of the kits is for me to review and the other I am sharing with my buddy Brett who is going to take me out bowfishing soon. You see, I am a bowfishing virgin. Brett has gone bowfishing, but I have never even tried it. He's going to put me in a spot where we should have a blast. We won't be fishing in the Carp Roundup, but we definitely plan on heading up there a couple weeks after. I am looking forward to the day when a group of us can all get out and do some local bowfishing. Another great trip would be bowfishing for alligator gar with Bill in Texas. See, now my imagination os growing and I haven't even been out yet!
Now it's time to get on over to the pro shop and get my new Piranha strings installed on my bowfishing rig, set it up with the Cajun Archery gear and go bowfishing!
