Growing up an avid angler fishing for walleye, bass, and perch, I never understood why so many people gave carp a bad rap. I never ran into carp while out pulling lines on the Saginaw Bay, unless close to shore or in the river. Mostly, I only saw them when their dorsal fins would breach the surface, and I paid them no attention because they weren’t the fish I wanted. Carp rarely directly impacted my fishing experiences, so I didn’t care to learn how to target or avoid them.
Now that I am bowfishing, carp are what I am after! So, I figured why not shed some light on what I have learned and why bowfishing carp is so important, especially if you’re like me and ignored them in the past!
Innovation is alive and well in the Great Lakes State. It’s where three lifelong sportsmen have launched Loxley Bowfishing, a new company that wants to provide archer-anglers with the gear and knowledge they need on the water.
