1. Does anyone bowfish around here?
2.What equipment do I need? Would like to use my longbow.
3. Where can I bowfish and what legally, can I catch as well as legal stipulations such as yards out any specifics?
Any help appreciated!

2. AMS Bottle Reel, Fishing Arrows, Traditional Bow mounting bracket
3. Where are you located? According to DFG you can pretty much bowfish anywhere it is legal to rod&reel fish. However, Individual lakes and cities may have their own rules.
Best thing is to go out with someone that has done it before. A boat makes it a bunch easier, but shoreline and docks can be good too.
Most archery shops carry bowfishing gear. You can also order from BassPro, Cabelas, Midway USA, Backwater Bowfishing etc.
Traditional Mount. Rubber straps hold the bracket on the bow tight. No modifications to the bow.
AMS Bottle Reel.
Solid Fiberglass Arrows with Muzzy Carp Point and Safety Slide. (Heavy to keep momentum in water)
Probably the easiest way to get setup is to buy a "kit" and the traditional bracket
Here is my first one from a few years ago at Big Bear Lake.

That sounds like a good idea with a group of folks going in on the trip. How much does that cost?
Thank you so much for your advice!
