[QUOTE=jeffrm20;13521678]Didn't want to start a new thread so I will just add to this one


I am a big time bowfisherman. Just started my 3rd custom bowfishing boat build. A Bass Tracker with all LED lights for night bowfishing. Nice and quiet. Im sure you know how the California hippies are with any type of animal killer, Ive been screamed at before with generators lighting up their Volkswagen-turned-to-RV campsites. Here are a few pics and videos.

Summer haul
My buddies folding platform.




Went out late last month testing out the new LED setup


Some daytime bowfishing

Wow very nice set up! Where the hell in Ca are you going? Im rite on the coast and all we hunt is rivers. None of the lakes allow Bowfishing

LEDs still need improvement, but it's nice bowfishing at night in silence without the generator blaring and pissing off the hippie campers

I will not use anything but an Oneida.

Oneida Black Eagles are where it's at, then the older Aeroforces next to that. You can find very good deals on them if you know where to look. Ebay used to be cheap but now everyone is selling Oneidas for profit only.

The Ospreys are marketed for bowfishing but they are cast risers where the Black Eagles are milled. Ospreys are going for $800 plus where you can find a prime Black Eagle for under $500 easily

What the hell does one do with all those carp after the hunt?

We used to do a little flooded tree wading for carp just to kill time during the day. Maybe killed one or two, they just went to the bank... But a 55 gallon barrel full?!?

The asian/black fisherman will gladly take any carp you give them. They will even just throw them in the trunk of their car, if not vineyards, hog farms will take them or even just take them home to bury in the flower garden. Makes awesome fertilizer

Ive been working my ass off getting my boat ready for spring. Just have to weld up my raised deck for the front, lay down the aluminum floor and build the small rear deck for storage and seats.

I was also just made Prostaff of a bowfishing company, so I am pretty stoked.

Dang this thread makes me wanna get into bow fishing!

I'm not sure how big the bow fishing scene is down here in south Florida, I'm going to check out some South Florida fishing forums to see what the laws are and whats being shot here.

Keep up the good job guys, and keep posting pictures.
