When we founded Loxley Bowfishing, we had a simple mission: To advance the sport. Over the past two years, we’ve introduced new bowfishing gear and written numerous articles to help people discover the challenge and excitement of bowfishing.
We know there are many people who want to go bowfishing but they don’t know where to go, what equipment to use, or which species they can legally target. Bowfishing charters and guides are in the perfect position to help these individuals and others learn how to become archer anglers.
Our new app will connect people with bowfishing charters and guides. It’s simple to use and has built-in filters so you can search by location or target species. Each listing also has links so users can visit the charter’s website and contact them easily.
Our goal is to build a comprehensive list of bowfishing charters across the country. We want you to be a part of this project, too. If you know of a bowfishing charter that we should add to our database, drop us a comment below and we’ll reach out to them.
We also invite bowfishing guides to contact us directly so we can add your charter information to our database so our audience can discover you. Guides and charter owners can learn more about the program here: loxleybowfishing.com/pages/charter-partner-program.
Together we’ll grow the sport for future generations.
Bowfishing is a great way to spend quality time with your bow each summer. It’s also a good workout and fun way to spend time with your friends. Before heading to the lake or river with hopes of filling your boat with carp, ask yourself: Just what will you do with all those dead fish? Craft a plan to use the fish you shoot productively.
Legal fish species vary depending on where you are in the country. Some of the most common freshwater fish shot are bighead carp, common carp, grass carp, catfish, buffalo and several varieties of gar, including the massive alligator gar. Many of these fall under the category of rough (or trash) fish. Rough fish are those fish which fall outside of the category of sport fish. They are species not commonly eaten and are often invasive species. Because they are not typically targeted by fishermen, bowfishing is a very good means of population control and removal of these often undesirable fish.
To help you get started, we have compiled a quick list of every US state and whether or not bowfishing is legal, some of the rules, and what you should be aware of. We've also included links to each state's fish and game or department of natural resources website for more information. So let’s get started!
