Chris Brackett’s Kamikaze Karp



I've been waiting a long time for a bowfishing app and this one is awesome! The first bowfishing app brought to you by the man that invented aerial bowfishing – Chris Brackett. The ninja fish are incredibly sneaky and annoying but the game is a fast paced blast that you won't be able to put down! Shooting fish gives you coins so you can upgrade your gear, no need to buy any coins if you just keep shooting! The app connects to Game Center so you can compare your scores to your friends!


You control cartoon Chris as he rides in the back of a boat while fish are jumping all around. Watch out for those ninja fish! Booyah!


Avalible on the App Store and Google Play for $2.99

How to install the Laser Bowfish Assassin by Clean Shot


To install the Laser Bowfish Assassin head you will need the following items

  • Laser Bowfish Assassin kit
  • Bare bowfishing arrow (standard 5/16) (purchase at
  • Drill with 3/32 drill bit
  • Safety goggles
  • Epoxy
  • Pliers
  • Moist paper towel
  • Drilling surface

Remove the laser head tip from the barb housing and flip the barbs toward the treaded end.

Make sure the bowfishing shaft is clean and that the barb housing fits the shaft. Apply a small pea sized amount of epoxy into the bottom of the non treaded, tapered end of the housing. Press the arrow shaft into the housing and slowly spin until the epoxy is evenly distributed.

Apply pressure firmly until barb housing is set on the shaft.

With safety goggles on slowly drill through the holes and arrow making sure you keep the arrow steady to insure a straight line to the hole on the opposite side. Take care not to breathe in the fiberglass dust and clean up the dust immediately with a moist paper towel.

Take the set pin and push into the hole as far as you can. Take the pliers and apply pressure to fully insert the pin, making sure that the pin is set evenly.

Flip the barbs back down and screw the laser head tip back on to the housing. After the epoxy cures (see bottle for cure time) you are ready to fish! Follow the instructions included with the Laser Bowfish Assassin on installing the activation bar and magnet slide.

Quick Knot by UPPER HAND


The only thing worse than not seeing any fish while bowfishing is not being able to get back to shooting quick enough when you are surrounded by fish. Losing an arrow, breaking a nock or tip used to mean being out of the game for many valuable minutes while you try to securely tie a new arrow on. Now, with the introduction of the Quick Knot, that time has been reduced to mere seconds.

IMG_3106 Quick Knot by UPPER HAND

The Quick Knot is a simple yet genius connector that is made from spring tempered 320 stainless steel wire that creates a secure connection by taking the place of  a knot, functioning similarly to a fishing tackle swivel but one piece that will not open or break apart.

Easily change arrow in seconds! Strong and secure connection.

Even the installation of the Quick Knot is so easy you can go from package to ready to fish in less than a minute; all you have to do is tie a knot.

??????????????????????????????? From package to ready to fish in seconds, all you have to do is tie a knot.

The Quick Knot was developed by two brothers with a passion for the outdoors and a truly innovative spirit.

Not only does the Quick Knot solve the quick arrow change, it has many other benefits as well. If you shoot a pass-through on a fish, you can quickly detach the arrow and pull the string back through instead of trying to thread an arrow nock first back through a flopping fish. Benefits also include storing and transporting your bow or big fish/alligator floats without the arrow attached.

The Quick Knot is truly a game changer when it comes to speed and convenience in the bowfishing arena. No more cutting your line every arrow change or trying to pick apart a knot that has been tightened down by reeling in hundreds of fish.

UPPER HAND put together a great instructional video.

Carp-i-vore™ from Bohning

When I started bowfishing, I equipped my bow with a reel and bowfishing arrow. I was using a three point bristle arrow rest that was part of the original bow setup. Since bowfishing arrows are much heavier than hunting arrows, the bottom bristle started to wear down. This became a problem since the arrow could fall to the side of the rest, creating a hassle to re-load, a missed shot or possibly a hazardous situation should the stop-screw bracket on the arrow hit the rest.

I found a solution when I found the Carp-i-vore™ from Bohning. The Carp-i-vore™ is the first and only fully-adjustable rest that combines the speed of a roller rest and the security of a capture rest. When I use the Carp-i-vore™, I know that my arrow is ready to go at any moment no matter when the shot opportunity happens. Speed is imperative when it comes to bowfishing and with the easy top load design I can nock an arrow, drop it in, and shoot within mere seconds.


Carp-i-vore™ from Bohning offers speed and security.Carp-i-vore™ is reversible for right or left-handed shooters and features vertical and horizontal adjustments making it perfect for any bowfishing set up. It is easy to install and can be set up in minutes.

Carp-i-vore™ has the option to change out the roller for a third set of bristles. The side bristles are also replaceable. I have never had my arrow fall out of the rest or fall to the side of the roller; even with running from the front to the back of the boat or twisting around for some tricky angles from shore or boat.

side viewCarp-i-vore™ has an MSRP of $48.77 and is available at, as well as other online stores.
