Easy, they will break your face at speed. Somebody here has actually had a fish hit them in the face at 70+ on a big boat, but I think it was in the ocean.

I can see where the skeet shooting thing could be pretty cool.

Some where on youtube they are bowfishing for them, shooting them in the air.

I was running the nightwatch on a 52 foot sailboat that a friend of mine owns and has me run for him every once in while down to the keys and Tortugas.

It was 3 in the morning and I was on watch by myself on a perfect night of 20 knots on a broad reach with the rail buried in the water with dolphins surfacing right next to the rail for about a half an hour heading for the
tortugas from Naples.

Anyways i am dead tired and the only thing that is keeping me awake is the dolphins playing by the side of the rail.

Next thing i know a fish about 30 inches long b i t c h smacks me in the face and lands in the cockpit jumping around trying to do its best to destroy every thing there. After what seemed like forever but what was only about 15 seconds of my startled sleepy azz screaming like a little girl i i kicked it overboard out of shear panic .

Anyways that was FUN.
