Bow Hunting Blue Cats

Type: Tidal
Region: Southern
Location: Potomac

I went out a few times the second week of August on the Potomac bow fishing for snakehead. With all the plant life in the river now we are just not seeing many snakehead as they have plenty of cover to hide in. On the other hand the water is so clear due to the same plant life that the blue cats were very easy to see so we adapted. We were careful not to shoot any Channel Catfish although we might've seen 2 out of 100 that were actually channels most were blue cat. We had several over 30 pounds and some over 40, but I must say the smaller ones taste much better.
