Beginning bowfishing

Question: I have been trying to get into the sport of bowfishing but two issues have my parents and me a little puzzled. My dad heard that if you are going to bowfish, you need some kind of special reel on the bow (don’t know whether it was an open face reel or a crank reel). We are also unsure what license I should use. Do we need a hunting or a fishing license to bowfish?
