Bayou Bad Boys Bowfishing – Lafitte

Bayou Bad Boys Bowfishing invites you to join Captain Shaw Couevas for a unique Louisiana fishing adventure. Even if you’re a seasoned angler, bow fishing from an airboat is a whole ‘nother rodeo. The crew is made out of local professionals who know what makes for a good time in these waters.

You’ll be going out on an 18’ Alumatech airboat that’s powered by a 500 HP Chevrolet engine. This nimble vessel can take you to a variety of places where larger boats fear to tread. There’s quite enough room on it for up to six anglers, making it perfect for a night out with friends.

You will be surprised just how alive the swamps are at night. They are home to hundreds of gators, and even more frogs and other wildlife. When it comes to fish, be on the lookout for Redfish, Speckled Trout, Carp, Bass, Flounder, and more besides. It’s safe to say that Louisiana swamps are very productive grounds for backcountry fishing.

All the necessary bow fishing gear is included in the price of the trip. It’s up to you to bring a valid fishing license, a pair of polarized sunglasses, as well as some drinks and snacks if you like. Join Captain Shaw’s crew for a night to remember!
