I live in Camden County. I've taken my son, co-workers, and friends bowfishing years ago.
It is really fun and exciting. You only need a minimum of gear, such as a rest to hold the heavy fiberglass arrow, heavy line, and a basic reel to attach to the bow.
You can easily find all the gear and kits necessary on the web. Look around it is part of the fun.
NOW... for the rest of the story!
Beware of where you go. I have had neighbors around the park call the police on me thinking I was shooting ducks while bowfishing.
Police arrived threatened to arrest me. I showed my and my sons fishing license. Told the cop we are allowed as per the State Digest. Also showed him the digest which states you are allowed to bowfish. Still no go. Told no weapons allowed in any County parks.
I contacted the State regarding my incident. The State said the local towns have the final say if you are allowed to bowfish in their jurisdiction or not.
So..... If you have a quiet private place to shoot carp, go for it.
It's a load of fun.
