Default Bowfishing who does it ?

I have a bowfishing kit saved on my favorites -going to order it very soon.

Anybody here into bowfishing ? ?

Went fishing this afternoon and couldn't even catch a single pinfish w/a trap or rod and reel.
Saw a HUGE stingray right beside the boat in three feet of water -could have easily shot it -all i need is a bow !

I've always wanted to bowfish. Got to save up money for the bow first!

Ive always wanted to but its pretty expensive.i had a chance to buy the whole set up with a nice bow and the legit line retrieve mechanism(dont know what its called) for a hundred bucks a couple years ago but my parents didnt trust me with a bow then .sheephead fishing with a bow seems luke a blast.

i love bow fishing myself, but heres some advice .dont spend a load of money on a bow to either find out you dont like it or to ruin it in salt water.one more thing use a safety slide on your arrows.dont tie your strinng to the end of the arrow.theres a couple of bows on craiglist you can pick up for next to nothing, just watch what you buy.

Ordered an AMS bowfishing set up today w/two muzzy arrows -looking forward to reducing the number of stingrays when it gets here..
Pictures will come.

I too have an interest in bow fishing, but havn't tried it yet. I'll be monitoring this thread to see what develops.

Jason why don't you do some daytime hunting ?
I went out over the weekend and saw numerous stingrays that could easily be shot.
I have a texasboars hog hunting light that i have contenplated trying out for nightime bowfishing.It will run for hours on a small car battery and would be very quiet compared to lights lit up by a generator.

I like boats - i like bows -i like fishing -so i'm pretty sure i'll enjoy this little toy -did some bowfishing back in the day.
Lets get some bowfishing going !
I can't believe that i go in archery shops around here and haven't seen much bowfishing gear at all when we are surrounded w/water and opportunities
