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!
