    With all the bowfishing going on I was curious has anyone shot any Mirror or Leather (also known as Israli Carp) in Ohio ?

    If your refering to Mirror carp as the ones that are partially scaled then yes, we shoot them often in a few bodies of water...If your refering to scale less carp (leather carp i believe?) I've only ever seen one ever shot.

    is there such thing as a scaleless carp(ie diffn't species called "leather" carp)? Or is it a mirror that just has no scales?


    Can mirror and standard carp interbreed?

    Yes on both questions - Leather's are just scaless & I have yet to see one in the flesh here in Ohio
    The Mirrors we catch are often Catfish bait that has got dumped or lost on the cast I think but some places have good #'s of them.

    Post some pics if ya got em"
