Bowfishing guide recommendations
« on: December 31, 2022, 01:57:38 PM »
Any recommendations for an area in WA and guide for some  carp bowfishing. My son graduates high school this year and looking to do a little senior trip with him in late June/early July.  (also planning to do a guided coyote hunt and some other fishing)

Or set up a couple bows for bowfishing and hit the potholes. That is what I did when I started. There are videos on the U of Tubes as well.
My first bowfishing bow was 25 lbs. You need to get pretty close for that poundage. Went up to 40-50 on the next one and stayed there.
Went through the different reels and stayed with a retriever reel and chistle point slider arrows.
Remember to aim low. No, lower.
One of you shoot an arrow out a ways and reel it in. They will follow. Careful! It gets to be addictive. Carp smoke up good if you want to try eating some.
Good times!
