Arrow Assault Bowfishing—Miami

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!

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 water. I'm an avid bowhunter and was introduced to bowfishing over 11 years ago and fell in love. I've competed in state archery competitions and bowfishing tournaments before I moved to Florida a couple years ago. 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 19 years in. The plan is to retire from the Army summer 2019 and open up the bowfishing charter full-time. I love taking people out on charters and sharing my passion for bowfishing. A lot of my customers say that my charter was the best thing they did in Miami while on vacation or business here.

Fantastic experience for my husband and son. They were over the moon and Captain Donovan maximized their bow fishing adventure. Thank you so much.

The bowfishing trip in Miami with Captain Donovan was awesome. Most fun we’ve ever had fishing. My 10 year old son loved it. And had minimal experience with a bow. We shot many stingrays, pin fish, a sheepshead, and a barracuda. The weather was great at night too. Pretty good visibility. We wanted to schedule another trip, but unfortunately couldn’t. We’ll Def do it again next time we’re in Miami. Captain Donovan even mailed us a stinger from the stingray we caught.
