Homedale, Idaho Bow fishing Tournament

Bow Fishing Carp Bow Fishing Carp

Nothing says Shotem and Caughtem better than the Sport of Bow Fishing.  This is how one of our members spent his Memorial Day weekend and we felt it needed a little more spotlight.  The Homedale, Idaho Bow Fishing Carp Tournament was this weekend and one of our members attended.  He gave us some information on his adventure.  The tournament was held on the Snake River and had 18 teams join in the fun.  The tournament uses the entry fees and the fact that they resell the fish back to a fertilizer company to hand out prizes to the top four teams.   Other prizes are also given.  For example, Bob Goodwin's biggest fish shot prize which was the 41.5 pound carp shown in the photo.  He was able to throw an extra 200 dollars in his pocket for his achievements.  The only mishap from the tournament was the fact that the tailgate on the fish hauling trailer broke spilling out two days of dead carp across the parking lot (also shown).  

All in all nothing was more fun than the three friends Bob Goodwin, Brandon Hammer and Tim Peppersack spending their weekend with each other in a good ol fashion Shotem and Caughtem style holiday.  Though they placed fifth out of the 18 teams and missed one of the top four prizes, they did land the biggest fish.  The most important part of the adventure were the good times spent on the water with one another.
