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!

What anglers said about Bowfishing in Florida

Wear tons of industrial strenght sunscreen and bring a rashguard! Also, take arm day at the gym seriously. You will need all of the upper body strength you've got to pull some of these giants in!

It would have been 5 star but the seasons for species were changed and we didn’t get the fish we were trying for. Better luck next time!

Miami Beach is a big city with a lot of fishing charters. You might come home empty handed. You will always have a good time.

It was absolutely a great experience. Fishing in the early morning might be a better idea and don't expect that you will find the type of fishes you want. Availability are varies and it's always a surprise on what you will reel in. As first timer, just be patience if you haven't able to catch anything on the first try

Don’t forget that what you catch can be your dinner. Several restaurants near the harbor, such as Dewey Destin’s, can prepare your fish any way you like with all the sides. DELICIOUS! I recommend bronzed or blackened. Thanks for the memories.

It’s just a short drive from Destin. It takes about 30 minutes from the Destin beaches but is worth the drive.
