What’s Bowfishing Like?
The arrows are different for bowfishing than for regular bow hunting. They’re typically made of heavier materials than standard arrows to cut more easily through water and the arrows don’t have fletchings because they would affect the aim as water streams over the arrow. Bowfishing arrows also have a mechanism (usually a slide feature) that allows you to attach a line to a reel and the arrowheads are barbed to hold tight to your target as you reel it to the boat.
The third piece of primary equipment is the reel that screws to the bow. Unlike a typical fishing reel, the bow reel stores its fishing line in a bottle instead of a spool. This allows the arrow to travel at rapid speed without being hindered by a slowly unraveling reel.
You may also want to bring gloves to protect your hands as you reel in the fish. I have gloves to offer, but if you have a favorite pair that you’ve broken in, you’ll probably want to bring them along.
Last, but not least, we use flat-bottomed boats for all guided bowfishing tours. It’s steady in the water as adventurers lean over and aim for the fish and it’s quiet so as not to startle the fish. We normally book up to 6 clients on a private charter, please keep in mind we only allow 3 shooters at a time on the bow. If you choose to book a bowfishing tour at night, we use fixed spotlights to illuminate the area around the boat for better visibility. As a bonus, the light helps attract some of the fish!
Tips for bowfishing
While we’re out on the water, we will work to turn you into a master bowfisher and ensure you come back with a worthy catch. Here are some tips to help ensure you’re bowfishing trip is an absolute success.
- Practice your water aiming by sinking soda bottles or another shiny target into water at different depths. Shooting at the targets will help you understand how light refraction affects your aim and what it’s like to hunt through various depths of water.
- If you’re wondering which bow to bring, a 25-50 pound bow is sufficient.
- If you’d like to buy your own arrowheads, look for ones that match the game you’re hunting. Drum & Gars have very heavy scales and will require a maximum penetration arrowhead. Most other fish will only need a basic fish point for soft-fleshed fish. Regardless of the penetration strength, it’s best to buy arrowheads with a quick-release tip that folds the barbs in for easy removal.
I love sharing my love of all types of fishing with my customers, and I can’t wait to introduce you to the joys of bowfishing. Not many people have experienced this unique fishing experience, but those who’ve tried it always come back for more. It’s an addicting kind of fun!
