We have been busy whitebass fishing and bow fishing these past couple of weeks. We enjoyed shooting the Grand River Monster Bowfishing Tournament this past weekend on Grand Lake as we weighed in 15 big fish for a total of 189.9 lbs for an 8th place finish. Over 50 boats entered to shoot the 1300 miles of shoreline of our Grand Lake. Everyone that entered the tournament had great things to say about the tournament and Grand Lake.
