Nailed this Bad-Boy with a long shot in a deep Drain. El Centro, CA (Imperial Valley in Imperial County) One of the challenges BowFishing for Carp here is that 99% of all the BowFishing is in deep, steep high banked dirt Drains (10 to 20+ ft deep) with 2-4 ft deep muddy-murky slow running water, where your arrowed Carp can get tangled with your line in the Brush, Weeds and Reeds at the bottom of the Drain. While pulling your Carp up through that mess, your Carp can come off your arrow or you can loose your arrow too! Frustrating! I solved that problem by fabricating a 23’ Adjustable Telescopic Gaff using a Mr Long Pole from Home-Depot and attached a 4 1/2” Gator/Shark Hook on the end. When I nail a Carp now and it gets all tangled up, I use that Telescopic Long Gaff and yank that Bad-Boy right up out of there!
