I just always wondered what folk do with the fish after the trip. The few carp I've caught have been stinky so I tend to leave em be.

I could do it on large mullet, except it is not legal where I fish - no spear fishing or shooting the fish. Can gig em tho.

I'm not sure what you're supposed to do with em. We shot mostly carp and drum and we tossed them. We did put out a bunch of jugs and limb lines and caught a good mess of catfish. Caught about a 30 lb flathead on a limb line. My 12 yr old son came along and he loved it!! It's just a blast and you get to shoot the bow a lot!! I see a lot of late nights in my future.

i sell em to some local fisherman and guides who use it for trot line and cut bait. Anyone who's never tried, it's a blast
There's more fun in hunting with the handicap of the bow than there is in hunting with the sureness of pulling the trigger.
