Bow Fishing Equipment Info

Unread postby Silver Belly62 » Sun Jul 27, 2014 5:10 pm

Ok you veterans, looking at some bow fishing equipment and wanted some info from the guy's that are already in it what you would recommend getting. I already have a spare bow (60 lb class) that I'm not using that I figured I would use, if that's not too heavy. Looking for suggestions regarding rests, arrows/pts, string systems, etc. Any one brand better then the other ? Just want to get some of the right equipment the first go around if at all possible. Post or pm me your suggestions, thanks

Thanks UB, with the bow being in the 60lbs class that's not too heavy is it ? Seems a lot are shooting in the 40-50lb range but I'm not looking to have to buy a new bow.

you will be fine. just gets old if you are into them. that is a lot of weight.

I'm hoping to get into bow fishing because it seems like a lot of fun and I was just wondering is it legal in most lakes?

By the way, you can find more info in my new video
