So I asked some questions the other day because I had never been bowfishing before, I dont think I did to bad considering I used a longbow and dont have a reel
Jacob Smith: Those are some slabs man! Good shooting!
Lane Netto: Thanks, what I have to use haha
Jacob Smith: Hey man Ive been there! Lol
Lane Netto: I enjoy it, keep it simple, never been before so didnt want to invest to much effort into it
Jacob Smith: Your hooked now though aint ya?
Lane Netto: Ohh ya, but I want to stick to my longbow I like the challenge
Jacob Smith: You can get bottle reals your long bow and get away from then actual bottle lol
Lane Netto: Heres my upgrade going to install tonight
Lane Netto: The bottle kept denting
Lane Netto: Done, should work good
Jacob Smith: Good luck with it man!
Lane Netto: the bottle worked good enough, this should be better
Jacob Smith: No doubt!
Lane Netto: just ordered this reel, tape on, good enough for my longbow, i dont need a fancy one, just something sleeker than my metal can on a dowel haha
Jacob Smith: I never have been a fan of the wind up reels like that. But to each there own! As long as outside stickin fish and havein a blast what you shoot dont matter
Lane Netto: I dont want a heavy reel on my longbow, going for light and simple approach
Jacob Smith: The bottles reels weigh a pound maybe?
Lane Netto: Not sure never had one
Jacob Smith: Ive never weighed any of mine Im just guess but they add little to no weight to the bow
Jon Potter: The reel question (pun intended) is did you get all your arrows back
Lane Netto: Lost one, only had one had to run to grander lol
Jon Potter: Thats impressive! Was it a miss or did the fish swim off?
Lane Netto: i missed but i was using tipup line, so bought real bowfishing line and a new arrow
Lane Netto: the tipup line was like 20 lb test
Jeffery SV Jr.: So what do all yall do with those fish? Are they any good to eat?
Lane Netto: I dont eat them, but a friend is going to smoke all the carp I get, Ill try it haha
Jeffery SV Jr.: Yea I know carp are an invasive species up there and yall try to take out as many as yall can. But I was just wondering if they grind them up for fish food or mulch or just throw them out?
Lane Netto: I usually keep carp for fertilizer, but my friend smokes them, and I had a guy ask for some for cutbait
Jeffery SV Jr.: Yea I use the alligator gar for bait sometimes. But theyre a bitch to clean.
Lane Netto: I wish we had alligators and big gar up here, would be a blast
Jeffery SV Jr.: They fight so hard. If you get one more than 4 ft you better have two arrows in him.
Scott DeLosh: nice job . gonna try it in tbe st lawrence … massena.. this weekend Dustin Delosh..
Stephanie Dawber: James last night I showed you the pic of this guy long bow. Look at this!!!Good job man! Both on the catch and the bow!
Lane Netto: Thanks, pretty fun, the setup worked better than I thought, Im actually going to keep using the longbow, keep it simple haha
Sean Burkett: Good job
James Pearson: Not bad at all man good job!
