Arrow Assault Bowfishing—Miami

(2) Just booked!
1099 MacArthur Causeway
Miami FL, United States

Book a trip with Arrow Assault Bowfishing and come experience one of the hottest outdoor sports sweeping the nation. A combination of hunting, fishing, and archery, this method is like no other. Captain Donovan Tate has more than 10 years of bowfishing experience and is known for giving his customers the experience of a lifetime. Anglers of all skill levels are welcome aboard, so gather your friends and family for a night out in Miami, Florida!

You will fish aboard a 20’ custom made bowfishing boat originally built in 2006 and restored in 2016. This craft is fitted with a highrise shooting platform and LED flood lights for nighttime bowfishing. She comes equipped with advanced fishing technology, including GPS, Fishfinder, and a wireless trolling motor. On board you will find seating for six and bowfishing equipment for four anglers.

Starting time is flexible, but you are likely to meet Capt. Donovan half an hour before sunset. He will give you a quick practice lesson and a chance to try your hand at a few shots before heading out to the flats of Biscayne Bay.

While bowfishing these skinny waters, you can target a variety of non-game species such as Southern Stingray, Barracuda, Sheepshead, Mangrove Snapper, and Striped Mullet. All these fish are delicious, and Capt. Donovan will gladly clean and fillet any that you would like to take home.

Arrow Assault Bowfishing provides a saltwater fishing license and bowfishing gear by Archenemy and AMS. Capt. Donovan ensures that all fish are harvested within FWC regulations.

You will receive a call the week of your trip to confirm your launching location. Trips in Miami can depart from Pelican Harbor Marina, Watson Island Marina, and Matheson Hammock Park Marina. When he’s not fishing in Miami, you can join Capt. Donovan in various locations including Homestead and Fort Lauderdale.

Come aboard and see what bowfishing is all about!

About the Captain

Donovan Tate
Miami, Florida, United States
Member since August 2016
I grew up in Oklahoma hunting and fishing. I love the outdoors and spend a lot of my free time with my family on the waters. I'm an avid bowhunter and was introduced to bowfishing 10 years ago and fell in love. I've competed in state archery competitions and bowfishing tournaments before I moved to Florida last spring. You can find me at Bass Pro Shops conducting hunting and archery seminars as well as bowfishing seminars throughout the year during promotional events. I'm an Active Duty Army soldier with 18 years in. Hopefully, Miami is my last duty station and I can retire here in a couple years and open up the bowfishing charter full-time. I love taking people out on charters and sharing my passion for bowfishing and the feedback I get from clients. A lot of my customers say that my charter was the best thing they did in Miami while on vacation or business here.

This was my first time Bowfishing and everything exceeded my expectations. Capt. Donovan made the trip so exciting. I highly recommend Arrow Assualt Bowfishing if you want to have an experience of a life time.

It was a great first Bowfishing experience for us! It’s not easy to arrow a fish, we had dozens and dozens of frustrating misses but our captain patiently guided us and finally we managed to hit 2 4-pounder Tilapias and a huge garfish.
The search and shoot was certainly more exciting than conventional hook and reel fishing. We’ll be back for more!

Thank you so much for the review!  I had a blast out with you two, I would be more than happy to take you out again and next time we will get in the salt water of the Biscayne bay.  Have a safe trip home and let me know if you ever need something set up in the future.
