Beav, have you guys ever tried for paddlefish? I've thought a few times about getting a paddlefish archery license and giving it a go!

From: Joey Ward

Cool! I have never heard of nor seen such a fish. We shoot some big large mouth buffalo in the Missouri up here as well as paddle fish.

Brotsky we go for paddlefish every year with archery. Medicineman yes they are very good eating. They are a plankton feeder. They have very white and firm meat. I am checking into mounting him but it could be extremely expensive so not sure yet.

Congratulations!

He's off to the start of a darn good year already!

From: Beav

He weighed just under 42 lbs but wasn't weighed for 24 hours. I shot at the fish at the same time but my son was the lucky one. I think I was happier that he got it. Went through the gill plate on the opposite side. He dove under the boat after an epic fight so we didn't even get another arrow in him. When I felt the arrow I reached down and found his gills and stuck my arm out through his mouth and brought him in the boat. We just all looked at the fish in awe!

Wow, way cool, congrats to your boy...

Don't have bigheads around here (that I'm aware), and curious - Are those gold colored bigheads common, or a rarity? ...Thanks

From: Beav

Zbone, I have been bowfishing them for 20 years and this is the third one I have ever seen.
