Picking the right crossbow can be quite difficult. As in any type of purchasing decision, there are many variables and many choices. Crossbows come in a variety of types, sizes, colors, makes and models. They also can range anywhere from hundreds to even thousands of dollars. With so many choices it can be difficult to find the right crossbow.
You've got your rod and reel, your lures and baits, your sunscreen and sunglasses. Now all you need to do is find the fish. Any experienced angler can tell you that being "on the fish" is more important than any equipment you have. Knowing where to find those Carp chasing the school of Shad, those pools of surface breaching Bass, and the deep holes where you know that monster Catfish is hiding is worth your sinkers weight in gold.
