I got got go bowfishing with a few buddies in La last Thursday and Friday nights. We fished with Bow Deadly Bowfishing Charters out of Port Sulphur, La. Capt Richard did a great job of putting us on the fish!

This is the cool airboat we were on:

Thursday night we were in fish all night. We ended up with a limit of redfish, 2 sheephead, several small gar, and one MONSTER gar!

My buddy Nathan, from Arkansas, got the first arrow in the big gar, but three of us shot it before we got it in the boat. He kept wanting to say it was a 400#'er, but in reality it was more like about 120#.  Here is Nathan with the big fish of the trip:

We had a lot harder time finding the fish Friday night, and the water was a lot murkier, but Capt Richard kept looking until he found them for us!

Here is Friday nights take. Another limit of redfish, and some smaller gar.


group night 2.JPG 


Bob Sarrels had so much fun he wanted to kiss one of those gar!

It was a great time with some great friends, and with a great guide!!! I can't wait till we get to do it again!
