I like boats - i like bows -i like fishing -so i'm pretty sure i'll enjoy this little toy -did some bowfishing back in the day.
Lets get some bowfishing going !
I can't believe that i go in archery shops around here and haven't seen much bowfishing gear at all when we are surrounded w/water and opportunities
a few buddies who I go offshore w/ were told I was gonna take my gear but never did....I just got my 24 volt trolling motor now gotta fork out $$$ fer my batteries then daylight work can be done...we can hook up and try sometime... I got a 17.5 cat that has a huge deck which is perfect!!!!

Anybody here into bowfishing ? ?

Went fishing this afternoon and couldn't even catch a single pinfish w/a trap or rod and reel.
Saw a HUGE stingray right beside the boat in three feet of water -could have easily shot it -all i need is a bow !
Mike;

I have bowfished off and on for over 35 yrs...in 5 different states for anything legal, it's a blast!

If your boats not ready..wade...just get the best gear you can afford, we have big fish around here and they'll take you for a ride.

Good luck...keep us all posted...

Jason -sounds good on going sometime - i have a gheenoe 13' that i plan on just drifting/poling through the flats and doing some shooting.

I'll keep you guys posted on any shooting -maybe we can have a get together somewhere and do some stingray thinning -plus i hear they're good to eat.

What are the rules on what you can shoot or where? I have an old bow laying around and have not ever really thought about it.

Go to youtube -there are several vids showing how to fillet them.
I have seen several rays that were HUGE -can't wait for the bow to get here.
