As a kid in high school I hunted fish with a bow all summer long. I had one of those solid glass barbed fishing arrows. I used several of the inner strands from paracord waxed together, no reel just let the string float. Worked ok. Later I switched to sealed wood arrows with like a 30 carbine over the target point to make them blunts - no string or sights. Hunted the shallows of the river up stream, misses floated back to me. Hits were interesting - either dead right there or they swam around some and required some chasing. Mostly carp, some were really big. Don't think very many were over 3.5 feet but 100's of 1.5 foot class.
