Earlier this year, Bob and friends went on a trip to Land Between the Lakes, Kentucky to do some atlatl spear fishing. The lakes there are overrun with Asian Carp, an invasive species that makes for the perfect fish for harpooning. We’ve finally gotten around to editing a few of the videos. Here are the first two videos, and we have several more to come. Enjoy!
Atlatl Fishing – Shooting, Filleting and Eating Asian Carp
Bob Berg demonstrates how to shoot an Asian Carp with an atlatl and harpoon setup, and then what to do with the fish after you spear it (hint: eat it).
Atlatl Spear Fishing – Dealing with Refraction
Atlatl spear fishing tutorial! Bob explains how refraction affects your aiming when you shoot into water, and where to aim relative to where the fish appear. (In short: Shoot just “under” the fish.)
