Mississippi Bowfishing Trip

I decided one day to look for a guide to go Bowfishing in Northern Mississippi.  I found an outfitter.  I checked the prices out and decide to get a group together to try them out. 

We show up at the local Walmart to meet up with Joseph, the head guide.   After following him to the local lake, the rain came in.  We waited at the bow ramp for about 30 minutes to allow for the rains to clear.   After launching the boat, the hunt was on!!    We stayed on the water from 9:00 pm to 3:30 am.    Total fish count was 78 fish!   One gar was 59 inches long and weighed 24.82 lbs.  Had several carp 10 lbs or better and several gar over 24 inches.  

If you are ever in the Northern part of Mississippi check out www.arrowinaddiction.com.  We had a great time and I know if you try them out you will too! 

Whitetails are my forte, but bowfishing for the giant gar is nice during the off season.

Great Job

That is something I always wanted to do. I've shot carp from the bank but it looks like more fun to go out in a boat after gar. I will keep the guide in mind and want to thank you for sharing the information.

Great Job!!!!!!!

   Looks like it would be a blast. I hooked up with Chris Brackett and did some extreme aerial bow fishing for asian carp. That was awesome. You should give it a try.
