Fishing just got way more exciting! Magic Bowfishing offers fishing trips out of Ocean City, that are everything but ordinary. Explore local rivers and bays with Captain Greg, as he takes you on a bow fishing adventure. This technique requires different equipment, which makes the whole experience like hunting on the water.

The adventure starts on a 24’ Long Beach custom boat that accommodates up to 4 guests. This center console is powered by a 115 HP Suzuki engine , 25 HP Suzuki kicker with Cobia Tower Steering/Spotting   & a 25 HP Gatortail Mud Motor all on jackplates for shallow water. To make your targets visible during night trips, the boat also has 200 W lights with 2 generators. The equipment is always there, which consists of 10 bowfishing setups, arrows, AMS reels, harpoons, gaffs, and anything else that’s needed. We also have added a new custom build 21’ Uncle J Bowfishing boat strictly for extreme shallow water in the river powered by a Gatortail Mud motor ,Susuki 30 hp ,trolling motor and 5 Star Led lights.

The equipment is adjusted to your targets, so bowfishing gear isn’t the only one you’ll find here. There are also Flounder gigs and Clam rakes. You can go after Carp, Bluefish, Garfish, Shad, Ray, and Black Drum. You can keep the catch, so it’s best to bring a cooler and save the fish for tomorrow, when you get to taste the fruits of your success.

All equipment and fishing licenses are included in the price. The captain also has some bottled water and various sodas on the boat but feel free to bring your snacks and drinks. Make sure to wear proper clothing, especially on a night trip.

Your trip with Magic Bowfishing can be adjusted to meet your needs. Get in touch with the captain and discuss the details. Anglers of all skill levels are welcome to join, so what are you waiting for?

I grew up on Assawoman Bay to Chincoteague Bay and all our rivers across Delmarva - hunting, fishing, bow fishing & crabbing. I fished and traveled the BASS circuit in high school and college, and started Magic Sportfishing Charters after graduating. I've been guiding inshore & offshore trips for over 30 years.
