    Bowfishing uses a specially designed bow and arrow set that is attached to a fishing line, so when you take aim to hook onto a fish, you can easily reel it in. The types of fish that are most popular to catch in Tampa Bay while bowfishing are the ones that hang out in shallow water, including Sheepshead, Snapper, Sting Rays, and many more. Despite popular belief, Rays are quite yummy and are the best to bowfish for because of their wide surface area compared to other fish.
