Wow, hate to hear that - that sucks! Just for curiosity, I am assuming since you got stuck ya'll are bowfishing while wading or either you got stuck once he made it to the boat. If you are wading, how deep of water are you in and why not use a flats boat or skiff; is that not stealth enough? I am clueless when it comes to fishing for rays, so was just curious.

no we were in my boat, in about 5in. of water. most of our bigger rays seem to bein 5-15'' of water. i would not think about wading for anything in these waters with what i have seen out there latly. thousands of small/big rays,sharks,jellys,man-o-wars, and others that seem to like bitting back.

Can't you find something a little more challenging to kill. At least flounders will try to haul ass when they know something's up. Leave the rays alone.

dfa

yea like shooting a flounder is real challenging there the ones always laying there till you pass over at least a ray is moving . like to see you squarm alittle when you stick a 80+ ray and all hell breaks loose. they will let you know whos in charge.
