Went out on the Holland river to do some bow fishing with a local guide. My first time trying it, we had a blast, there is still a huge smile pasted on my face the next day. Not only that but we we got some massive carp and missed some even bigger fish. Big fish was 27 lbs, i still cant get over the size of these fish, just unbelievable, no question biggest fish in the lake are the carp.

(All fish were/will be consumed by humans and canine)

What do you do with them afterwards? I have heard some people eat them but I have never meet anyone that has tried one.

Hey, I actually found this post via Google search for bow fishing carp in Simcoe area and joined the forum just to reply. Are you willing to share the contact info of your outfitter/guide? I'm new to bow fishing and I'd be interested in making an outting before the end of the season this year.
