    Default Bow fishing around toronto area,

    Hello All,

    I need some bow fishing advice. My question is for all you bow fisher man, do you like a dedicated bow for fishing or do you use your existing bow and change the setup everytime ?

    Definitely dedicated bow for fishing.

    It's hard on your bow shooting them heavy arrows and banging it around the boat or river bed.

    I had a 50lb diamond bow I bought for $200. Bought the muzzy bow fishing kit with rod n reel and 2 fiberglass arrows with broadhead.

    I bought the Bow used for $200 (2010 Diamond stud)

    I'm pretty sure I bought everything else from Amazon, Muzzy rod n reel and arrow rest, 200lb cajun line, two 30" fiber glass arrows

    I cut 4 pins off the sight that came with the bow. Only have 1 pin and it's almost useless anyways.

    You aim way low on the fish, the farther the fish is, the lower you aim for when the arrow hits the water it really deflects it.

    I missed so many 10+ yard shots I would limit myself to about 5 yards, preferably 4 foot shot straight down lol

    Missing fish means you are seeing lots,Its a good problem to have if you ask me.

    I will get a dedicated bow setup for fishing, i think i will get it ready for next year. There some sports around toronto area full of carp, i dont think we can bow fish there.
