    i need some advice on spear/bow fishing. me and my friends always canoe down a river near us, its pretty remote in some places with some deep pools, some shallow stuff, and some dropoffs. we always see huge gar and other huge fish and i have a bowfishing kit, andmy buddy has a spear gun. (i do have a license) what is the best way of doing this? any kind of tips will be helpful.

    Experience says to find the fish and stand still, letting the fish come to you. Both carp and gar will naturally keep moving.

      you can get stabilizers for bows that have a place that you can put a reel. then you need to get some bowfishing arrows that have a place 2 hook them to the line.

        If you can buy or make outriggers you can stand and shoot the fish from the canoe. also if you friend can get into the water his spear will work great but i would not want to be in the water with a huge injured gar.

          grab a ladder and set it up in the river so you can be above the water and see the fish better. better shooting angle to.
