Bowfishing: A New Way to Slay on Alabama’s Beaches
If you can’t choose between hunting a deer and reeling in a drum, bowfishing may be the sport for you.
There’s a hot activity shaking up the nightlife scene on Alabama’s beaches - and there are no dancing skills required. We’re talking about bowfishing, an outdoor sport that turns a peaceful fishing trip into an adrenaline-filled adventure.
- The Hunting Company/Fish Kabob Bowfishing. Enjoy a one-of-a-kind bowfishing experience thanks to their custom-made bowfishing boat, The Destroyer. The area’s only air-driven charter boat, this specially designed rig allows up to six passengers to easily shoot off the deck at the same time. They offer a variety of charter packages to suit any group, from short in-shore journeys to overnight trips off-shore and more.
- Shallow Stalkers / Liquid Trails. Board a LED-laden boat and set out on a guided bowfishing adventure with Captain Zack Kettles. Bow in hand, your group will stalk the shallow waters on an exciting hunt for giant stingrays, flounder, sheepshead, and even sharks. Every trip includes easy-to-use equipment and instructions, making this experience great for all ages. Don’t want to shoot? No problem! You can also try tossing a shrimp net for underwater marine treasures.
- Night Shift Charter Service. Led by Captain Ron Stone, your group will follow the fish through Alabama and Florida waters, hunting the biggest Flounder, Red Fish, Speckled Trout, and Stingrays you can find. When you return to the dock, whatever you catch will be cleaned and bagged for you, then sent home with a spice mixture made by the iconic Wolf Bay Lodge's executive chef - also known as Captain Stone himself!
- Intercoastal Safaris. The experts at Intercoastal Safaris run four-hour saltwater bowfishing trips up and down the Orange Beach coastline.
