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!

Really check out the guides before you commit. We've had some losers. It's kind of hard to do long distance; we are from Montana. On our trip, late April 2024, it was a cooler than normal spring evidently. Luckily, the water temp worked out. April is an awesome month to come out. The weather is great, the water is warm, fishing is like no other.

Check with the guide first if your an experienced fisherman. He will know when to come. and not to. We came at a tide event but he still knew where to go for fish I think he could dial in a perfect day if you called ahead and planned around that
