there are several ways to do this, and no, i don’t mean using it as a spear or a fishing pole, either, altho those can work, with spawning carp or salmon runs)spearing/scooping them) or in shallow pools of (late summer) panfish(mostly bluegill)
Looking back on this, I know people that have shoveled carp before. Me personally, I think “why would you do this and deprive yourself of an awesome time of bowfishing”, but that is just me. However, I fish, and know a lot of people that fish a lot more than I do, and probably a lot more than your average joe. I’ve never EVER heard of anyone shoveling panfish.(Disregarding a drought or some really freak incident like someone draining their pond or something like that.) Where did this guy do this panfish shoveling?
