Could you use regular bows for bowfishing and just mount a reel on it. Or should you buy a bowfishing bow. If so how much do they usaully run?

You can use your regular hunting bow and just buy a reel to put on it.

Thats the great thing about bowfishing, you can spend as much or as little money to go. Just about any kind of bow will work, if you use a recurve make sure it is at least 45#. Or your hunting bow will work great. I have dedicated bows for bowfishing, the fishing can be really good in the fall and I don't want to keep changing my setup. Also bowfishing bows don't get treated well they can get covered in blood, slime, eggs or get droped in the lake.

      where we all fishing today?   Looking to walkout or use 4 wheeler if landing permits?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.
