Bowfishing Association of Illinois, in cooperation with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, will host the annual Directors Shoot/Innerloc State Bowfishing Championships July 19-20 on the Illinois River at Starved Rock State Park, according to the Illinois DNR.

The daytime portion of the tournament will be 5 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, July 19, and will consist of a Big 6 Daytime Championship, an Invasive Numbers competition, and many big and small fish competitions.

The nighttime fishing championships start at 8 p.m. Saturday, July 19 and end at 5 a.m. Sunday, July 20, and will consist of a Big 30 weight championship and an Invasive Numbers competition.

The tournament has become a popular mid-summer event for bowfishing anglers, and has helped remove tens of thousands of invasive Asian carp from theIllinois Rivereach year.

DNR Director Marc Miller usually attends and takes a few shots at nonnative fish.

“The Big 6 will have a minimum $1,000 payout, and there will be many great prizes for the fish competitions including bows,Texasbowfishing trips, gift cards, and much more,” said Bowfishing Association of Illinois President Ed Devries.

The entry fee for the event is $30 per participant, which includes a free lunch between shoots and a large array of door prizes.
