How to make a fishing bow


Can you turn a regular bow into a fishing bow?

If you’ve been thinking about getting into bowfishing, and are reluctant to spend money on a new bow, don’t stress about it too much. Relatively any bow whether it is a compound or a recurve can be converted into a bowfishing bow simply by purchasing the correct accessories.

Can you bow fish with a compound bow?

Some compound bows are built specifically for bowfishing so they can be shot with fingers. They also have a consistent draw weight, much like a recurve, for fast shooting. You could also convert your hunting bow to a bowfishing rig. However, it’s best to dedicate a bow to bowfishing.

When bowfishing do you aim above or below the fish?

In bowfishing, you want to hit the fish in its thickest part so the arrow securely anchors. But you can’t aim directly at the fish. Light refraction in the water distorts what you see, meaning the deeper the fish, the lower you must aim. A good rule is to aim 3 inches lower for every foot of depth.
