Southern Draw Bowfishing Charters

Shoot fish under the lights at night! Southern Draw Bowfishing is the premiere bowfishing guide service in the New Orleans area. Captain Doug Stanley and his crew will take you and your group on an adventure of a lifetime!

All skill levels are welcome, so don’t hesitate to join if you’ve never tried bowfishing before. Capt. Doug will show you how to use the bow before the trip starts and will be by your side at all times if you need his assistance. Bows are provided for all guests on the boat and they are included in the price. If you’re bringing your kids along, they need to be at least 10 years old.

The captain welcomes you on his 22’ Gator Tail boat, which accommodates up to 6 guests. The boat is equipped with all necessary navigational and safety gear and also has the lighting system that can increase your success on the water, since you’ll be fishing during the night.

You’ll see all types of wildlife as you cruise the marsh. Your main targets will be Redfish, Catfish, Sheepshead, Gar, Flounder, and Black Drum. You can keep the catch and the crew will clean it for you after the trip.

Besides your fishing equipment, the captain will also provide bottled water on the boat, but feel free to bring your own beverages (including beer) to keep you refreshed during your trip. Don’t forget to purchase your fishing license.

Captain Douglas is a local who has been fishing for 10 years now, but he only started to professionally guide trips in 2019. He loves fishing, did it all the time and finally decided to make it productive. He doesn’t treat it as work as he enjoys it very much and he's happy he gets to do it every day.
