View Full Version : Bowfishing action!
04-22-2008, 08:30 AM
Went to the ventura grade yesterday and shot some real pigs! Water is murky in Clear Lake so had to wait for them to come very close to the surface. Day before there was a 15 lb musky trying to jump the grate into Ventura marsh, so had to be sure to identify my target! Lots of activity in the southwestern part of the little lake. Still trying to shoot a gobbler with my bow, but I took a afternoon off after a long weekend in the woods.
Sounds like fun!
would love to see some slimer pix!!

Found out the guy's name is Darin Opel from Worden,IL. He said he is 6'4" and 300 lbs. The fish was 62" long and had a 30" girth. The old record for bow carp was 35.5lbs. The story was he fought him for 10 minutes then bearhugged him to shore where the fish fought him. He thinks it will be broken by a 100 pounder.
