I use to do a lot of bow fishing. Had a boat rigged up with lights and a generator to run them. I worked PT at an archery shop that was extremely in to bowfishing. Like everything else, if you didn't go big you got left behind. All the boats with outboard engines turned into air boats with big V8's. I shot a few competitions but it was more for fun than trying to win. The big boys left us little guys in the dust. I always said they may have shot more fish but didn't have any more fun than we did. Now they are mostly using Oneida's but I still prefer a good old recurve.

Stay away from negative people, they have a problem for every solution.
