Bowfishing has increased in popularity in recent years. What began as an entertaining and unique approach to landing fish has turned into another avenue for tournament sportsmen. Not only is it a great way to aid in the control of invasive species but also, as proven here, a fantastic method to harvest monster game fish.
Just ask Alex Phillips of Ash Grove, MO. He landed the new Missouri alternative method state record redear on April 28th while fishing on Table Rock Lake. What's better than landing a 2 pound, 1 ounce state record? Landing it on the boat of the previous state record holder.
