Here is a video shot on my airboat showing what my idea of the ultimate Bowfishing setup is. I started with a Trad Tech Titan and a set of Border Archery Hex 7 Ilf limbs and added a MegaMouth reel. The string is from Chad at Champion Bowstrings. Rest from Dan Decker DDD

I love bowfishing
Been doing it for years
I’ve always used recurves and I’ve rigged them many different ways
I’ve shot sharks to alligators
I’m working on my ultimate fishing bow setup and should have it pieced together soon
Who likes to bowfishing and what are you using ?
I love bow fishing
I've shot alligators ,rays , sharks , redfish , sheephead, carp , snapping turtles , bass , catfish and a bunch of things that swim in the Amazon
Heck I even built a special boat for river fishing and bow fishing
So I'm always looking for intetesting Bowfishing kit
Does anyone here use a springy for bowfishing or would that be a bad idea?
Trying to set up my "beater" Rambo Warf for bowfishing and general shooting- ideally use the same rest for everything (a springy).
Would the safety arrow slide / get caught up on the springy?
I have an old Bowtech mighty might that i would like to make into a recurve for bowfishing. the poundage on the bow only goes down to 70 which is why i want to be able to just put on recurve bow limbs that are around 30-45 so i can bowfish with it when i am not hunting. Is this even possible? if...
I'm in recovery mode for the foreseeable future and am looking at "Quintessential 10# Training Limbs". I tried 16# SF axioms,but they are pulling in the mid 20's with my risers and draw leangth. The Quintessentials appear to be Samick Sage compatible. I would like to have a riser that would...
My younger brother is wanting to try bowfishing. I'd like to give it a try with him I think. I have a 35# Sage that I bought with the intentions of using for bowfishing and target practice. I'm trying to decide whether the AMS kit is worth $80 more or if 1 of the Cajun kits will work fine for...
Hello, me not done any bowfishing to date
Does the arrow passing through the water take a lot of power?
I can see where it could
fiberglass arrows seem heavy
water might be a tough medium to go through to get to the fish
Seems like a lot of posts have some fairly hefty draw weights with fish...
Hello i want to save abit of money and instead of buying a cheap bowfishing setup, im thinking of getting this traditional stabiliser adapter http://www.3riversarchery.com/Product.asp?show=rate&c=56&s=319&p=389&i=5045#full
my question is i will be using my nice custom and only trad bow
First off, I'm NOT interested in the AMS retriever type reel. Far too expensive for the few times a year I'll go bowfishing. From what I hear the spincaster types can be problematic and are just as expensive as the AMS by the time you buy the reel, reel seat, and maybe a short rod tip. So I'm...
Hello! I am wondering, just on a whim, if there might be any West Michiganders on TradTalk that may be able to help me out.
I am looking for places to bowfish, without a boat, with my son in West Michigan near Holland, Grand Haven, or Muskegon. I am at a loss. I know there are many good areas...
BOW FISHING ON THE CHEAP – HOW ABOUT $10 INCLUDING THE BOW.
There is no catch. It’s just a matter of using serviceable but not fancy materials.
FOR THE BOW- A one and a quarter inch OD, 5’ piece of Schedule 40 PVC material makes a bow with a pull weight between 55# and 60# at 28”.
