Ok I've only been bow fishing once, last spring, I didn't have all the equipment and that was bad. Dumb 16 year old kid tied 15 yards of trotline string to the arrow and then to my belt loop. Long story short i kill 2 carp and I'm hooked.
I will mostly be fishing alone and was wondering if it was possible to put both a AMS retriever and a spinner on the bow so that if i need a second shot i have it. Second question is how good are the garpoon arrow points, i already plan on a muzzy quick release carp tip.
Thanks, Sammy

I'd think you'd spend more time untangling some wicked knots than you would fishing.

Just pick 1 reel,spinner or retriever,and roll with it.200# fastflite in the spinner,400# ff in retriever.

You won't need the 2nd shot if you don't miss the 1st one! lol
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

what he said but for spiner go with either muzzy xd or shakespear ti20 and if you go with the retreiver which is what i use, go with the ams pro

Stick with muzzy points, don't know about garpoons, but the first arrow I had that came with my kit had a sting-a-ree point and the big ole wings on that thing would plane something awful in the water.
