In Season – Cow Nose Rays

Bow fishing is used to catch a wide variety of fish, and with the nice weather we’ve been having, we’ve been experiencing a lot of that variety here at Destin Bow Fishing.

Cow nose rays have been popping up and have become visible in our clear and blue water, and the southern rays are starting to seemingly come out of nowhere. Feeding non-stop and pushing up on the sand bars, all of our recent bow fishing trips have been successful. Shooting from about ten to fifteen rays per trip, they have been weighing in at the 30 to 40-pound range. They’re known to get up to as much as 100 pounds, so maybe you’ll get lucky!

The southern stingray is member of the stingray family found in tropical and subtropical waters that often bury and cover themselves in sand or substrate in order to hide from predators. Known for their usually docile and distinctively playful behavior, these big bottom rays often put on a show and pull line out hard and fast, providing fast and furious bow fishing action. 

This bow fishing season has gotten off to a good start so feel free to come out and join us this summer!

Warm June Weather

Here on the Emerald Coast this June, Destin Bow Fishing is offering up some of the warmest and most ideal weather we’ve had in the past year!

With crystal clear water that’s already warming up and allowing for near-perfect visibility, we’re able to provide you with the guaranteed greatest bow fishing places in the country!

For our first-time guests and those of you that just aren’t as familiar, bow fishing is a method of fishing which utilizes specialized archery equipment to shoot and retrieve the fish in place of fishing lines, making for the perfect combination of hunting and fishing.

Most non-game and rough fish species are legal for bowfishing and nighttime is considered to be the more popular time for the sport. Fish tend to come out and feel more secure at night as the water cools, even though here we’re having just as good luck during the day!

Most arrows are used without sights, instead bow fishers rely instead on instinct. Although perhaps awkward and unusual at first, this will soon become second-nature. We can assure you that bow fishing is a lot less intimidating than it sounds, and is much easier to prepare for and learn than it sounds.

Destin Bow Fishing is very accommodating for beginners, and our professional staff is always around to answer questions on bow safety. We offer the equipment needed and will help provide you with the experience needed to master this unique and exciting sport!
