Bowfishing for carp and other rough fish has become increasingly popular, but so, too, have problems with improperly disposed fish arrowed by archers.

“We’re seeing a few too many cases where people are just dumping the fish,” said Capt. Greg Salo, DNR Central Region enforcement supervisor. “Not only is that pretty disgusting, it’s littering, a misdemeanor that carries a $150 fine.”
