I use a old Grayling Bear recurve with a retriver reel and Warheads or Muzzy Fish arrows. I recable all my arrows with steel cable...... Handy for yanking them out of the submerged tree trunks. :roll:

Haven't bowfished in years... been stationed/living in the arid, desert parts of the southwest mostly.

Did it often when I lived in MI. Used a Bear Grizzly w tape on reel and 90lb test, std solid glass arrow w harpoon point.

After spring floods water would recede and fish would get trapped in pools. Talk about shootin' fishin a barrell... could often get 3 or more on one shot!

One time shot at a fin sticking up out of some muddy, shallow water... hit a BIG "alligator gar" that pulled me right outta the canoe! OK, wasn't that hard since I was about 4'11" and @ 90 lbs at the time... ;)
