This is BOWFISHING
Here's a pretty good video
The Fish Poem
ALTHOUGH you hide in the ebb and flow
Of the pale tide when the moon has set,
The people of coming days will know
About the casting out of my net,
And how you have leaped times out of mind
Over the little silver cords,
And think that you were hard and unkind,
And blame you with many bitter words.
"I'll follow him around the Horn, and around the Norway maelstrom, and around perdition's flames before I give him up." --Captain Ahab, (clearly referring to spawning carp)
You WILL double-stick fish
"Ahhh yeah!" --said Everyone
Starting in May and through July, the carp will move into the warmer, shallower water to spawn. The larger females are full of eggs and the aggressive males will slam and push into the females. These carp will churn the water into a furry!
Basically, it's the 'carp rut'
Denver Colorado's Exclusive Bowfishing Charter
They don't sleep it off. Night shoots are just as good!
-W.B. Yeats (Clearly a bowfisher. Who just missed a spawning carp.)
General Season Booking
We are on the fish late April through early August. On any given day during these months, you'll shoot carp.
