Bowfishing For "Flying Fish"


This is just a video that shows how dangerous it can be to take your kids fishing where we used to fish all the time in the Illinois River. This river used to be home to some of the best white bass, sauger, walleye, large and smallmouth bass and catfish fishing in the country. Now its dangerous just to run your boat in the river.

This new type bowfishing sport has firmly taken hold however. Should you ever find yourselves up this way the Bowfishing Association of Illinois will take you out free of charge. There is really no need to hire a guide. They are on Facebook. Contact Ed, the Association President. They will be down in Lanark shooting rays from time to time also.
