Miami, United States

Background
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.
Techniques
Bowfishing with bow and arrows. 4 shooters at a time. Up to a max of 6 passengers. No Chum. No Bait. No Rod and Reel.

Went fishing on Friday, June 23, 2017

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.

Thank you for the awesome feed back Manny. Your crew was a blast to have aboard I hope we got to do this again in the future.

Went fishing on Sunday, January 15, 2017

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.
