Bowfishing on Fort Loudoun

Post by Deadmeat »

No pics, but I went bowfishing on Ft. Loudoun Lake yesterday and got three carp and could have gotten quite a few more but had to get back for a white bass trip below the Ft. Loudoun dam later that day. They haven't started to spawn yet but should get cranked up in the next few days from the looks of it.

The white bass trip went really well. It was completely dead until about a half hour before sunset when they really came in. My buddy and I probably caught 15 or so between us, most weighing around 1.5 pounds but a few were smaller. We were using several things, a Rattletrap, white Roostertail, and a ShadRap. Right at sunset the stripers started hitting topwaters and we both caught one apiece. Both only weighed about three pounds but were a hoot on an ultralight, which is mostly what I fish.
