As it is the time of year when carp spawn and are in close to shore, I have been seeing people along the lakeshore with archery equipment, bow fishing for carp.

If one were to already have a bow and arrows, what additional equipment would be needed to go bowfishing?

    Clearly you'll want an array of depth finders, a huge bass boat, and filming equipment. Commented May 30, 2018 at 11:19
  • Fishing line. Bow mounted reels are probably more convenient than dispensing it from hand held coils. Commented Jun 1, 2018 at 5:44

Although probably not necessary, polarized sunglasses are extremely useful to spot the fish - especially on a sunny day.
