Utah lake and Carp are always fun. I use to do it every spring, but have not done it for a few years now.
Just watch out for snap backs, and geting the line tangled in the bow.

Fun sport, might have to give it another try this year.

I'm not even sure what the regs are here in Idaho but I can say that shooting carp with a bow and fish arrow is fun as all get out. When we go, we just walk the banks of the river and put the sneak on them and shoot. We miss a lot but also hit a bunch too. It's great fun and keeps your spot and stalk skills honed even if it is a dang fish! :thumb
