    Anyone have any suggestions for a good bowfishing rig. I have a PSE nova that I would like to dedicate to bowfishing and was wondering if anybody out there has some suggestions/good experiences with certain brands of bowfishing set ups.

    I would just say make sure you get an arrow with the cord down the side to tie your string to rather than tying off right by the knock. Especially if you have an overdraw. I had problems back when I bow fished where my line was breaking. I finally saw some frayed line in my overdraw. After I switched to a better arrow, my problem was gone.

    As for reels, I preferred to hand reel and wrap around a spool rather than to use a bow fishing reel. Simple and cheap.

      As long as you aren't shooting 150lb gar, any of the gear at your local sporting goods store is fine.

              The AMS bowfishing rig is ABSOLUTELY the best and only one to use. I just finished another week of bow fishing and I never cease to be amazed at how well it works. After years of use, I have never had a tangle or a problem and that string coming out of the bottle imparts just enough drag to keep that heavy harpoon arrow flying straight. Although the arrow is heavy, you can accurately shoot out to 30 yards. I've tried about everything else out there and can honestly say, that there is NOTHING like the AMS rig. I saw the bottle/reel rig for $60-75 last week. I would recommend a good Muzzy harpoon tip on about a $15 fiberglass harpoon arrow. They sell little rings to put on your arrow to tie the string to... it slides up and down the arrow... don't tie to the nock... the string will tangle in everything. Use the sliding ring so your string always stays ahead of the arrow rest. Good luck.
