Join Tampa Bowfishing Charters and explore these productive waters on a bowfishing adventure you’ll remember! Captain Ike Carrasquillo is a second-generation captain and a Bass Pro Shops Cabela’s bowfishing pro-staffer. He has developed a true passion for bowfishing, along with his reputation as a professional bowfisherman.

Before every trip, he will make sure everyone is comfortable handling and using the equipment, and once out on the water, he will be constantly on hand to offer his top tips and tricks and to make sure you hit your target (almost) every time!

Capt. Ike’s 22’ Tracker Grizzley 2072 has been set up specifically for exciting inshore fishing. It’s powered by a 150 HP Mercury Command Thrust engine that will take you to the very best spots, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There’s a trolling motor to let you sneak through the shallows without spooking the fish once you get there.

Night fishing? No problem! The boat has an array of super-bright flood lamps to light up even the most starless night, and her high-tech electronics can sound out the murky waters below no matter the conditions. She’s also equipped with 2 power poles, tower, and SeaDek carpet.

Every Tampa Bowfishing Charters trip comes with all the necessary equipment for bowfishing, although you are of course welcome to bring your own if you prefer. Fishing licenses are also provided by the boat, and there is a cooler for any food and drink you bring, so all you need to do is turn up. Please do not wear any boots or hard sole shoes.

Please let the captain know the group age and gender, and how many left and right shooters there are. This information will help the captain bring the correct bows to your trip.

Captain Ike will clean and fillet all your catch for you, ready to take home and enjoy, because with this level of action, you are bound to work up an appetite!
