bow setup advice

Recommended Posts

hey guys- looking for some feedback about purchasing a new fishing bow. I already have the bow I would like to use. wondering where the best place to purchase line/ reel and accesories. Is the internet the best place to seacrh? I have seen a few things at gander and a few other stores, but just have not been satisfied. any good brands I should look at over another? any equipment you didn't like to have? lookin' to find some thing before next spring. figured now is a good time since the bow is on my mind a little more than usual. thanx for the help and advice.

Go to sullysbowfishing.com they have everything you should need. I really like the 3 barb grapler arrow. If your looking for a reel don't get anything but the bottle style. They are the best by far. Another thing I would suggest is turning your poundage down to 45 or even 40. If your ever shooting around reeds it will take you forever to get your arrow back. Good luck. Hope this helps.

I second getting a bottle reel. They are the only way to go! As for arrows and tips I like the muzzy carp point and stingray are my favorite tips. If yoy are shooting large carp in deeper water don't be afraid to up the poundage. I was drawing 55 lbs this year in open water.

I haven't used the 3 barb grapler point, but I have used the stingray/Sting-O-Ree tips for years and agree that they are very dependable.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
