So Ive bow fished before and had a blast. Looking into doing it more. Other than just putting a reel on an old bow what is the best set up/brand to go for? I don't wanna break the bank just want something that is quality built and gets the job done. Thanks!

You can do a lot with a simple setup from Bear Archery. They have one that's just a drum for line that screws into where the weight would go on the bow. Get a recurve from Bear or a Samick. I've used Bear. Good stuff.

Pse sells and entry level ready to go bow called the discovery for $299 with a muzzy reel or with the arms bottle. I would go bottle,it's safer. Or find a bow with no let off of your liking and buy the bottle kit.

Academy sells a bottle, real, and arrow kit for around $80. Works great and is easy to install. Any old bow works.

I use a zebco 808 with the muzzy rod mount and it works great
