Havent in about 10 or 11 years... Did it alot when I was a kid. Grew up right by the river. Used to skip the last day of school with a couple buddies and spend all day shootin carp. What fun!!!!!

Sounds like it would be alot of fun. I know you're allowed to bow fish in Cassadaga lake for carp but what in the heck would you do with the carp afterwards???

Nice Pics RBH!
I have 2 compound bows, is there any way i would be able to use my older bow for this?

Old bows would work .I would guess a bow in 50-60# range would be about right . Our recurves are 50# bows . Fishing arrows are heavy so you may need a different rest for a compound ? .

Where do you buy the reels for them! I have whisker for a rest on both bows will this work?

they make special biscuits for fish arrows they are only $10. You can get the stuff lots of places here is a pretty good site. i would highly recommend getting a retriever reel.
