    I have looked into this, as I'm also interested in converting a crossbow into a bow fishing setup. I have talked to two local bow shops. Neither one had ever heard of any such thing available on the market...but that doesn't mean it's not out there somewhere. I will check further into it. If I manage to find anything...I'll definately let you know. If you don't mind...please do likewise.

    Thanks

    Ive seen some short clips about people shooting alligators with crossbows. but for the alligators they had those jugs that they attach to the end of the rope so they can shoot em again. Ur prolly wanting something with out the jug for some smaller fish i guess but i dont think they got em like that. If your plannin on catching some huge fish it should work out good for you.

    I dont know what kind of crossbow u got but if it aint worth much you could prolly try building some sort of bracket on the bottom to hold your reel. Dont know how good it would work though.
