Well, January has finally arrived. For those of us here in the north, that means deer season is over and hard water (that's ice for our southern friends) is upon us. Although we still have ice fishing and small game hunting, I use this time to do inventory of my bowfishing gear and determine what upgrades I want so I’m ready by ice off.
Ice off is hands down some of the best shooting you will have all year. Fish are still schooled up and coming in to feed in warmer, shallower waters. That means it’s one of the best times to get on some of the biggest fish you will shoot in one location. As an added bonus, the water is so cold the fishes' metabolism is slowed down enough to make them sluggish. Often times, you can get multiple shots at the same fish without moving the boat.
Recently, Ryan and Jake interviewed Greg Oxford from Bowfishing TV. Read the transcript to find out how he got into bowfishing and what his favorite species is to target. Plus, he shares some of his funniest bowfishing moments.
Ryan: Hey, man. Thanks so much for your time today. Let’s jump right into it - tell me how long you’ve been bow fishing.
Greg: Oh, my goodness. I have been bowfishing since I was 15 or 16 years old, and I’m almost 50 so it’s been many years. Now, I did take a break in there for a long time. But I’ve really got hard back into it within the last 10 years or so.
Ryan: How did you get into bowfishing?
