Loosing fish
« on: May 04, 2016, 03:56:56 PM »
So my buddy and I have been sticking a lot of fish but a lot if not almost all of them have been coming off. We have sharp tips on our arrows and are both shooting the ams tiger sharks with extended barbs. I'm shooting the PSE wave and he's shooting a diamond razor edge pulling 50 pounds. We can't seem to figure out why we are loosing so many fish. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Are you shooting the double barb tip that you have to back the tip off to rotate the barbs for pull out?
Just tend your own and live.

50LBS seems very excessive, I never had that issue with the muzzy heads that you twist the point so that the barbs rotate towards the point so you can pull the arrow out, then just flip them back towards the nock and tighten the point. seems like my bow I shoot carp with is somewhere between 35-40Lbs and I still get complete pass thru if I hit them back off the gills too far

Yea those are the tips I'm shooting. Maybe the fish are just a little to deep

True most of the fish I shot were within 3' of the surface

If you really want to hold onto fish...try out some Innerloc 3 barb grapples or a 4-barb gene davis tip. Both will hold onto big fish. These are the only two that guys really use in tournaments.
