what was really cool was when my son shot it straight down into the water.. wish I would've took a picture of that! the splash was massive.. and then not 15 seconds later a guy across the lake that was fishing all day, finally caught a fish! I think we scared all the fish his way.

Yeah - done that at one point as well, across a lake.

@VH_man: Now there's a plan - ultra skimming. How to go about it though?
