Crossbow Fishing : Give it a try


Crossbow fishing is here to stay and an awesome way to use your crossbow this summer.

AMS Bowfishing has made it extremely easy by introducing a couple of crossbow fishing kits to get you started. To make this all possible AMS developed revolutionary Sleek-X mount that should attach directly to the quiver holes on most crossbows. After it’s attached you simply mount your retriever reel as well as the float directly to it and your off fishing.

The two AMS crossbow kits available are both well built but engineered for different game. The first one is designed specifically for general all purpose bow fishing. It features the AMS Retriever Pro that has a heavy-duty brass gear and pinion, aluminum trigger, composite housing and stainless steel fasteners. This American made reel is built to last. The complete kit includes:

  • AMS Retriever Pro with 25 yards of 200# Test Braided Dacron Line
  • 3 Crossbow Bolts with AMSChaos Point
  • AMS Sleek-X Crossbow Mount
  • AMS “Between the Banks” DVD

The second crossbow kit is designed for aquatic big game (alligators). It features a series of specialized equipment, like the retriever which allows the end of your line to pull free while tied off to a tracking float in case you have a real monster on the line. The aquatic big game kite includes:

  •  AMS Big Game Retriever® Pro with 400# Braided Spectra Line
  • 3 BreakAway Crossbow Bolts with AMS Big Game Chaos Points
  • AMS Sleek-X Crossbow Mount
  • AMS Big Game Mega Floats
  • 25 Yard Spool of 400# Braided
  • AMS “Between the Banks” DVD

The fiberglass bolts they include on either kit are 24” long and feature a 22/64”diameter. They come with a half-moon nocks are made specifically for bow fishing. Each bolt has a hole is drilled for the AMS Ring System and positioned so the stop screw clears the retention spring on the crossbow.
