Ant of you guys out there bowfish a lot. I have hardly got to go this summer, no time to do it. I shoot a bear element at #25 with a muzzy wave rest and an AMS pro reel.

I've been able to do a couple trips out at Arcadia. I shoot an old recurve 36# with AMS reel. My buddy lost a couple nice grass carp on Arcadia. Other than that just been shooting the commons.

My meat and potatoes is gar, I don't really have any wade-able carp spots yet.

Oh sorry meant to tell you I was on a friends boat at night. That was a big detail I left out. I know my nephew had decent success earlier in the year walking Arcadia on the north side. I am not sure what part of the state you are in but I also know that Hefner has some very wadeable water to shoot fish. Just make sure to wear waders or dont get caught not wearing waders, the OKC police will write tickets on that. You will also be greeted by them every time you are out there because people see a guy walking around with a bow and call the police.

haha, I live in Sapalpa so the Arkansas River, polecat creek and rock creek are my main areas. Most of the people in tulsa are used to seeing bowfishers on the Ark, and a few of the TPD officers we know just want to see what we shot.

Oh nice. The OKC cops are pretty cool. They seemed to be more intrigued by the concept of bowfishing than concerned we are walking around with bows. I had one who didnt even know if it was legal and just took our word for it.

The creeks that lead into Arbuckle Lake in the spring time are killer. Literally thousands of big carp spawning at the same time.

I have heard that. We had always talked of doing that but usually opted for texoma instead with not much success. Thanks for the heads up badfish.

Ya i bowfish as much as I can, but not as much as i hunt. I'm the friend CentralOk was referring to. I have bowfished Arbuckle at night only twice, and it was the same weekend. It was way way cold outside and the fog made for 50 yard visibility. This was in late March i believe, and we didnt have the best success. I think we shot twenty-something. Mostly small spotted gar and decent commons, w/ a few small buffs sprinkled in. I imagine may/june would be much better. So far in my experience shooting at night, the tailwaters below Kaw have been the best. any tailwaters will be great, and given your area i would say you should try the Keystone tailwaters when it gets warmer. Nice to hear from a fellow bowfishermen on here! I know Rusty Pritchard (Spoonbillz) does a lot of night bowfishing too. He's the only other one on here that i know of

I've always thought the far upper end of Claremore Lake would be good. I've been in there when the carp were working it over around the shallow weed beds, and take it from me, would I lie? There's carp in there big enough to ride...I've seen em.

I don't know if guys still talk about bowfishing on here, but I go quite often. I just got a new rig but am still needing to set up the deck. Had an 1860 alumaweld, but now i just got a new 2014 excel 220 bay pro. Hoping that I can get in a few tournaments this year. Thinking of entering the Bass Pro Bowfishing tournament in missouri.
