Any of the small tributaries off of the Potomac are great. More important than the tide is the water clarity. Try not to go right after a huge rain. Species will be carp, gar, snakehead. It's kind of hard to see right before dark and very early in the morning. Also hard to see when the sun is really high. Definately the easiest to see at night if you have lights.
Any of the bowfishing arrow tips are good. I haven't found that matters all that much. For the aiming, it is generally a little lower than normal and that gets even lower the deeper the fish is.
Get one of the retriever reels - it's a pain if you don't have one of those. AMS I believe is what I have.
Good luck. If we ever had a time that would work, I'd go out with you.

Seems odd that it tangles like that. I usually have no problems. I wouldn't think taking line out would make much difference. Maybe take it all out, then reel it back in. Could have to do with how it was initially put in there.
