The Bowfishing Craze

Updated: Nov 9, 2021

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, Sting Rays, and many more. Despite popular belief, sting rays 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 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. 

Whether you are looking for beginner-friendly or action-packed, bowfishing is the newest and best aquatic adventure for you and your family. Come try your hand at this challenging night-time experience and you will soon find out why it is the newest craze among amateurs and professional fishermen alike.
