otcWill was talked into coming out to Nebraska for a bowfishing trip. We had a blast and took home a lot of meat. Here are some pics from it.

You guys are my kind of BLM! That looks like an absolute blast!

Looks like the silver fish were also biting! You can always count on the silver fish until you get to the last one.

Beav told me NLM, too! (Natty Lite Matters). He said they draw the line at the LGBPD crowd, though. Lovers of Grain Belt Premium Drinkers.

Looking forward to getting up there and doing that again, soon! One question, though. How many times did it take before Will figured out to shoot on “two and a half”?? ;-)

T-Roy he caught on quick!!

As much fun as you can have with a bow in hand! These guys have it down to an absolute science. What a great time we had! Slice of heaven.

Now i know you didnt try to eat one of those Nasty, slimy , stankin bigheads!

But, otherwise, glad you stuck a bunch of them. We shot a bunch of them a few years back on the Ohio river n SW Illinois. Along with a pile of silvers. Nastiest fish alive!

From: Beav
26-May-21
We ate the hell out of them. Some of the best fish you can find. White and very firm meat.

From: midwest

Will told me it was the best fish he ever ate. Just a b!tch to bone out.

From: Beav
26-May-21
A real bitch but we have it down to where we can clean them boneless fairly quickly.

From: Joey Ward

They don't look too difficult to fillet. Are they ????

Looks like a blast to shoot, though.

26-May-21
Nice work !! Lookin like fun

From: Beav

They just take some time to make boneless. Six rows of bones.

Awesome! Now I feel the urge to get the boat cleaned up and head that way!

Looks like the best of times with some of the best people around. Can’t imagine the laughs and old jokes told over the weekend. I have to agree with Will amazing the meat quality of that fish. Hammertime !! Hunt

Made it back again to the river last week. Had a great few days on the water. My daughter connected with her best bighead carp of her bowfishing career.

From: Treeline

Wowzer! That is a big one! I need to set aside time and come see you guys when the big heads are running! Looks like a total blast!

From: midwest

Beav, are the big ones as good to eat as the smaller ones? I have to believe the big ones would be easier to de-bone.

From: t-roy

Bou….They are delicious. I was skeptical when Beav told me how good they are, but he wasn’t lying! Very comparable to walleye or flatheads, IMO.

oTCwill was telling me about this trip and I’m m super jealous. Don’t worry he didn’t disclose any details, said he was sworn to secrecy. But I’m putting this on my bucket list, looks like too much fun!

Maddie's fish was mid 30's. Perfect cleaners are 20-30 IMO.
