This is definitely the most bizarre type of “fishing” The Juice has ever read about. As reported in the Strongsville, Ohio police blotter of the Sun Star Courier:
… officers had a chat with a boy because of his unusual fishing methods.
Concerned residents called police because the youngster — who was at Waterford Lake on Prospect Road — was catching fish with a bow and arrow that had a suction cup attached.
Sure, that’s a little odd. But then …
He would take the fish out of the water, beat them to death on a rock and throw them back in the pond.
Hmmm. This might be something his parents should know about, no? Apparently not.
Officers told the young fisherman that only catch-and-release fishing is allowed at the pond. The boy left the area.
