Wow!  What is your hit to miss ratio?  Even at a high hit ratio you gotta have a target rich environment.  31 fish, awesome!

Very cool ! I've shot a few talapia here in Florida walking the canals near my house but man those are some spooky skittish buggers. What is your technique to get close enough for the shot ? I'm assuming you are using a boat?

Crazy big haul congrats!

Elijah,we walk the banks ,and wade most of the time.Your right,they are very skittish.I shoot a lot of fish in the 10 -15 yard range,which helps a bunch. God Bless
