Move this topic to the general archery, muzzleloader forum, you will get a much better response. I would help you if I did any bowfishing.

maybe post it again in the bowfishing forum. many use traditions stuff.. a recurve and a fiberglass arrow and some way to get the arrow back is all thats needed for tons of fun. If you do bo with a compound, noting fancy is really needed, keep the poundage somewhat low, I usually go for about 40lbs at most.

I'd buy a cheap used long axle to axle compound from a pawn shop or off the classifieds. You don't need a nice bow for bowfishing and it will get beat up. I'd outfit it with a AMS retriever, and a nice heavy duty roller arrow rest. I'd also make sure to pick up some polarized glasses. That's about all it takes for bowfishing. Also...aim low, and the aim lower. Most people miss high when they start bowfishing.
