We went bowfishing in shallow waters for Tilapia and Carp at Lake Mead. Bowfishing takes practice and this video demonstrates how we find the Tilapia and hunt them with our AMS Bowfishing gear. If you have never tried bowfishing we recommend this you give it a try. We had a blast while helping take care of the invasive species populations.
Caught on a home made simple ledger rig. small swivel, 6lb main line, 8lb leader, size 6 korum hook. 1 piece sweetcorn from a can on the hair. My arm was killing me after catching back to back big carp that fought for 10 mins a round, Had to get this one banked before my arm fell off! wouldn't fit in my net, not even close, had to bring her into a muddy bank and quickly onto a soft grassy area. Released in fine form as I caught it. (unhooking mat is in the mail on the way)
The catch of 4 nice fish. Good shots of the takes on the float! The scenes with the two carp I lost didn't make it to the director's cut... Sorry 'bout the noise, I switched the sound of but it didn't work. Pond is in The Netherlands.
