Hey yall I'm brand new to this! I'm just an archery guy and I was curious about bow fishing so ducted taped a regular reel to my bow and set off, needless to say it didn't work. So I went and bought the ams pro kit from cabelas. I've taken it out a lot and haven't got a damn thing, I still aim too high everytime, but my question is should i use my new compound or my older one? Thanks guys!

Try this,

Aim 6" lower than the fish for every foot it is deep.

2 foot low. Aim 12" lower.

That will get you ball parked and you will see where your hitting in relation to where the fish is. It takes a little getting used to. Was hard for me to aim low at first because my brain was saying aim low but my mind was saying to aim at the fish.

Once you connect it'll all fall together and you'll see where you need to me. If you have somewhere to retrieve your target put a can or something visible in 1ft of water, take a couple shots at it and see where u stand
