Thats disrespectful to garbage men. :wink: I can't for the life of me understand why anyone would purposefully fish for those godawful things.

I fish for them all the time with a bow. :yes: I've also gone after them with a rod until I started bowfishing. Why? They make excellent trapping bait.

We purposefully fish for them all the time in the summer. One lake they stack up round the fish feeders. When it goes off the actually turn the feeder. Its like hogs at a feeding time. I use a special dough bait recipe grandpa taught me that has been in our family for some time. I also like canned sweet corn. Sometimes there are people hanging around that will go down and unhook them for you. All you have to do is rebait and cast. One morning I quit at 32, I was tired.

Smackaduck, do you bowfish at Toledo Bend??
I just got home today from Toledo Bend and the big boys have moved up into the bushes and pretty much all the shallow water that we fished. There's also alot of garfish too. We fished at 1215 and I don't know if i've ever seen as many as I did this week.

Ya, the warm weather brought them out. They were crusing around in the shallows. Could have done good with a bow. I have never done that, but will one day. Shoot me a PM if you want any more info on good locations.

Of course, strictly catch and release. I have no use for them except the great fight they offer.
