are you going for a replay if i feel up to it this year,i might let you give me a refresher course.been a lot of years since i've had a bow in my hands,and even more since i've looked down the shaft at something besides a deer or a squirrel.
If you do, start going out with some fiberglass arrows with tips (Can get one at any good sproting goods store)and practice shooting at two liter bottles in the yard. I started my son out by putting him on the porch and throwing out two liter bottles and he would shoot them and reel them in(if you don't have a reel just shoot and go get them). Then moving into the boat, it took him a while to learn about water refraction. The carp is always lower in the water them he appears. Always shoot at him like your trying to shoot under him and you will start hitting them. After a while it becomes second nature. Practice before hand and you will hit some and not become discouraged. You will miss more fish then you hit. You will get better at it. I don't get every fish i shoot at and either does other bowfisherman. Just fun to be out there and having a good time.
carp ain't that hard...when i first started there would be so many wiggling around and on my feet in 1" of water .something i didn't put a arrow thru muh foot. then i got more challenging at 5',then that was too easy and...10,midstream,movers and opposite bank shots on lil alum creek stream.you do ok,then make it more challenging before you shoot your foot.
