Bowfishing has become one of the most popular forms of fishing over the past two decades. It blends the challenge of bow hunting with the serenity of fishing, to create an action-packed yet family-friendly adventure.
Bowfishing uses a specially designed bow and arrow set that is attached to a fishing line, so when you take aim to hook onto a fish, you can easily reel it in. The types of fish that are most popular to catch in Tampa Bay while bowfishing are the ones that hang out in shallow water, including Sheepshead, Snapper, Stingrays, and many more. Despite popular belief, stingrays are quite yummy, and are the best to bowfish for because of their wide surface area compared to other fish.
If you are wondering whether or not your entire family would be able to bowfish, rest assured that even your smallest guppies can take a shot at reeling in their own catch. The bows that Poseidon Charters use can be adjusted between 15 and 55 pounds of weight, allowing the beginners to the more advanced fisherman to take on this exciting challenge.
The Crevalle 26 Bay boats that Poseidon Charters proudly run takes bowfishing from primitive to luxury. On our boats, we have mounted Black Oak LED electric lights that are essential for bowfishing. The flat-bottom boats that are typically seen being used for bow fishing utilize generators to keep their lights running while trying to take aim. This not only gets annoying for the people trying to fish, it also creates more commotion that may scare your catch away. With Poseidon Charters, you will be bowfishing in style with the best equipment and nicest crossover boat on the market.
Introduced to the love of boating as a young boy on the Chesapeake Bay, Drew was immediately a natural on the water. He took a keen interest in learning everything he could about all boat types and the skills needed to become a successful fisherman. Moving to Florida in his early teens only enhanced his joy of the sport as he was then able to learn more about the seasons and available catches in the Gulf of Mexico. Drew then began working at Chris Craft, a major boat manufacturing plant in Sarasota, FL, where he learned all aspects of the craft of building a boat from the ground floor.
Drew began his professional fishing career as a part-time deckhand on a local charter crew to share his love of being on the water, boats, and fishing. He then decided to pursue his captain’s license and continued on to achieve his Master Captain license. This enabled him to begin working as a captain and tour guide on fishing charters and tour boats in Tampa Bay.
