bowfishing uh oh

i have been bowfishing with one of my friends. i decided i needed to get into it. i had an old bow i used for deer hunting so i crancked it down and got a cajun piranah setup. a guy came in town looking to go to school here and i was supposed to intertain him. i took him bow fishing. the about third shot the string broke and went into about 6.5 foot of water at a pretty shallow angle so i had no idea where the arrow went. it was the only arrow i had, and i didnt ride 30 minutes to get there only to shoot three times and go home. so i stripped down and jumped in. me being only 6'2'' i could not reach the bottom so i swam around for about 25-30 min and found the frickin arrow it was amazing. thinking it was a bad spot on the line i ties it back up and we continued on. four or five more shots and it broke again. i was cold by this time and had nothing else to dry off with, so we took out some rods and went fishing. i came back two days later and within about 5 minutes found it again. since then i have gotten some stronger line and have not tried it yet

Re: bowfishing uh oh

Well one thing is for certain, you live farther south than I do....lol. If you'd jumped in around here, you'd have been hypothermic in less than 5 minutes.

Definitely get some stronger line. I could be wrong, but I think most bowfishermen use Dacron these days.
