					Quick Tips on Bowfishing
• Bowfishing is a developing sport. Whether you are new to
  this activity or have been wondering why you can’t get lots of
  fish, here are some tips to help you.
• Equipment
• You will need bows, arrows and accessories. You can use a
  compound, long or recurve bow. The most commonly used
  bows are those that weigh 35 to 60 pounds but the weight
  should depend on what keeps you comfortable and make you
  at ease.

• For arrows, the fiberglass ones with reversible barb are the
  best choice as they are sturdy and heavy enough to punch
  through fishes. It is better if you have spare arrows.
  Remember that not all arrows have reversible barb, which
  makes it easy for the hunter to remove the caught fish and
  aim another shot.
• You will also need reels. They come in various shapes and
  sizes. Of course, the price differs too. You can choose to buy
  cheap basic reels that require manual winding. There are also
  reels that need only a push of a button to rewind on its own.
• Take care of your equipment. Wash the bow and arrows after
  use to keep them looking good.

• Boat
• Do you really need a boat? Not all bowfishers go out with a
  boat. However, having a boat means that you could reach
  more areas. You can also shoot from the boat but walking in
  the water is highly preferred by most fishers.
• You should also make sure that you have a quality fish bin. It is
  best to have a container than to use your boat as the
  container. You will deal with less fish and boat cleanup.
• Clothes and Gears
• When fishing using bow and arrows, make sure that you use
  old clothes and shoes. An old pair of shoes will not make you
  think twice about going through the muddy water. You should
  also have polarized sun glasses.

• Where to Bow Fish?
• Now that you have all the things you need, it is time to choose
  where you will hunt. Check the water depth. The ideal place
  for bow fishing is the one with clear water that’s at least 3
  feet deep. The water that is muddy will give you a hard time.
• You should also research on the favorite habitat of fishes you
  want to catch. For example, carps like grassy areas.
• Shoot
• The best part of bowfishing is when you finally get to fire a
  shot. It’s fun to aim, pull and release the arrow but you will be
  happier if you could get a fish with every shot. To increase
  your success rate, shoot your bowfishing bow lower than you
  would, based on what you see as water refracts the light and
  the fish appears to be higher.
