But with 2009 only half over, Missouri fisherpersons have already broken five records (so says the Missouri Department of Conservation). Did someone say RALLY?!?!

Forty-six Pounder!!!!
Check out the photo of a monster 46-pound smallmouth buffalo caught on April 17. Lucas Dement of St. Genevieve shot it that evening while bow-fishing at Duck Creek Conservation Area.

"Wait," you interject. "People shoot fish with bows and arrows?" Yes, they do. Check out this RFT feature story on the sport published last September.
