Bowfishing in Florida

Combine skills, thrills, and worthy rewards when you try bowfishing in Florida. The Sunshine State boasts three coastlines, plenty of lakes, and some productive rivers that all offer up exciting action with a bow and arrow. Whether you’re a pro or heading out for the first time, there’s plenty to keep you on your toes!
 
We’ll start in freshwater, where you can actually help conservation efforts by bowfishing. Target Carp and Tilapia, and you’ll be getting rid of two invasive species! Not only that, but they’re also pretty tasty, so don’t let ‘em go to waste. Other catches include Catfish and Garfish, along with monster Alligator Gar, but these can only be caught in strict limits, and we recommend only taking them if you like the taste of their meat!
 
When it comes to saltwater, there’s a range of hunting grounds to choose from. Inshore flats are popular for bowfishing in Florida, while the reefs further out are also productive. Flounder, Trout, Sheepshead, Mullet, and Drum are popular inshore catches, while Rays, Snappers, Groupers, and even Kingfish and Cobia are all possible along the reefs.
 
Florida bowfishing guides offer a range of trips to cater to your needs. Choose from a few hours on the water to a full day extravaganza, where you’ll maximize your chances of catching fish. Most experienced captains prefer to go out after dark, using specialized lighting to help you get a peek of your target. That just adds to the fun, so it’s worthwhile experiencing! Just make sure to check whether all the necessary gear is included, and away you go!

If you're at Mayport: arrive early, or be prepared to take a taxi/uber. Parking at the dock fills up very quickly. We were 25 minutes early and there were only 3 spots left (mind you, on the other side of the street) to park in. There is a little more availability of you have your own boat on a trailer, but honestly not by much.

My redfish eluded us once again. But that's why they call it fishing and not catching.

I’m not a great fishermen so probably not an expert in giving advise but caught our limit on white snapper and the captain was kind enough to show me how to filet them as well (I asked him to) and got to have a tea hands-on experience which is what I’d hoped for since I haven’t done this much. He will also filet them himself while you go rest and wait if preferred.

Do your research and book early! Reviews matter. We’ve gone out with 5 star and 1 star folks and they tend to live up to their reputations. The highest rated crews book out early, and they’re what makes the difference between a great trip and a bad sea story.

Me and my friend got lucky on the timing. The Tallahassee area was hit with multiple tornadoes earlier in the month, so my trip was canceled. The day prior to my trip, the captain said the weather was calm, but it was extremely wavy. The day of my trip, we had a few waves in the beginning, then it was perfect weather for the remainder of the trip.

If you have the chance definitely book with singing reel charters! They were very hospitable and had plenty of water and other hydration options. Tony and Travis blended well with our group and they are the most down to earth guys you can ask for who work hard to make sure everyone has a great experience.

First timers, I would definitely recommend you research the captains and vessels before making a decision on who to book with while in Bradenton. I did and it led me to Capt. Louis. He's knowledgeable, friendly and will work with even the most novice of anglers to guarantee a memorable experience. But above all, have fun!

Had a great time even got to check a fish off my son's bucket list of fish to catch. Very knowledgeable and friendly. If things didn't work out he always have a backup plan and allowed us to be part of the decisions of what type of fishing we wanted to do. Would definitely recommend and use him again. No complaints for a first time charter experience. Great crew and fun times.
