Let me first start off by saying that I have never actually gone bowfishing...
Lately, on a few local fishing forums, there have been some questions popping up regarding the disposal of the fish they slaughter. Being a pretty strict catch and release person, this really erks the hell out of me. Why go out and kill a fish with absolutely no plans to eat it or use it? Talk about a waste of a perfectly good fish and taking away an opportunity for someone else to catch it.
Obviously, there are a couple of fish that I would be OK with this, like asian carp, but aside from those obvious invasive and damaging species, why would anybody do this?!
Enlighten me - please.
