My mother and I are building two wooden kayaks, they are made from mahogany door skins! They are going to be done this summer too!

Fishing with a spear is super fun, but I like fishing with an air rifle. Last week I shot a good little trout with my Crossman Quest 1000 air rifle loaded with Gamo Raptor gold plated pellets. It was tasty and got the ol' beer batter and hot oil treatment when I got home. Not only do they not deform when you shoot the water and get superior penetration, but they give you 25% higher velocity and the fact they are lead free is the icing on the cake. What I like to do is wait behind the bushes on the riverbank with my air rifle near the shallow water until I see one close to the surface, be super quiet, and take the shot when I see the fish clearly.

It is actually quite a good time especially with friends. Fighting over who gets to take the shot is kind of a bummer but oh well. Make sure if you try this to use lead free pellets, no need to put lead in the stream or in your kill. Wadcutter pellets are good for up close when the fish is closer to the surface of the water. They hit and kill better than pointed ones due to the flat nose, it generates more hydrostatic shock especially out of a break barrel adult airgun that has 1000 FPS like my Crossman. Make sure you aim right below the fish too, the light refracts and makes the fish look as though it's in a different position than it really is.

And of course I've fished with a bow and arrow, and a blowgun, and a Hawaiian sling, and a wrist rocket, and of course a fishing rod.

Fishing with a slingshot is fun too, you really challenge your marksmanship. I use a wrist rocket just like this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000MD68JM/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=scoreyourhunt-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B000MD68JM

Again, I don't use lead ammo. I use either steel ball bearings, or rocks. I prefer rocks though because they are... well... dirt cheap. I put some strong bands on mine, they are black surgical tubing. It sure kills em' dead like nothing else.

Of course you guys are probably going to think I'm weird for catching fish with a slingshot and air rifle, but that's about as sporting as I get.  )L$

We can only shoot trash fish in Texas.  No game fish or good eating fish.  M__
