Last night, I went freshwater bowfishing in a canal outside of the Everglades with my personally designed laser lite crossbow. It is far more accurate than either my compound or recurve rigs which is a sorry statement regarding my skill as an archer.
These are Tilapia and Mayan Cichlids which are both invasive and very good to eat. There is a single gar which is now de-shelled and ready to broil like lobster and serve w/ drawn butter sauce.
I was tipped by an FWC officer that the perpendicular canals that feed through submerged culverts are full of bigger fish and only accessible by dragging a canoe across from the main channel. Give me a couple weeks to outfit Santiago with night lights, trolling motor, and overland transport wheel. And, crossbow cocking station.
Might take a little more than two weeks. The alligators can wait… No, I’m not going to shoot them. They are protected. However, I am not.
My wife wants to take out a life insurance policy on my carcass.
