What do yall say we kick this off for another year. With all this rain and the rivers rising I cant help but to think about slinging some bowfishing arrows since deer/duck season is over.

What size generator does it take for all those lights?
Salt or fresh water use?

I am ready to get back on the Pedernales river and stick some fish this summer. My goal is to have a bowfishing boat by the end of the year. I have always either gone out with someone or run the Pedernales during the day in a jon boat and trolling motor.

I was wondering about this. I just bought a boat and want to do some bowfishing. But want to start small. I was wondering if a few LED lights and an extra battery would do the trick. Any suggestions on LED lights to buy?

Yep. Once you've done the redfish thing, shooting carp is kind of blah.

It is 10x the fun when you're shooting your own dinner, as opposed to shooting dinner for the worms.

No doubt La redfish is the bomb for bowfishing! Since I moved, I have not had my boat in the water in over a year!! I need to get down to Amistad and see if I can find some fish!

As far as LEDís go, you canít have too many without a genny. If you have a lot of lights to get enough light, your battery wonít last long enough! Mine are 12v, and I run them with the genny and a 2 converters (no batteries for the lights). I rigged this way because I was concerned about the extra weight several batteries would add to the boat.

This boat needs some time on the water!

Agreed!!! I have a small deck with just 6 lights I use for getting on some small waters around home and it will last about 3-4 hrs. Bigger deck with more lights or wanting to go longer I get the generator out.

Ive never done the red fish trip but sounds like I need to plan a trip for sure!!!

If anybody wants to make a run to Louisiana, iím available
I know the out the way holes that are much closer than NO, venice, or grand isle.

Go and put a 25/man limit of trout in daylight, mop up the reds,black drum, sheephead and saltwater gator gar at night without getting any further than 3-4 miles from the launch.
Bull reds are in transition from deeper holes to the marsh as we speak.

I haven't put them to the test yet but I plan on trying just batteries. They are 30watt LED 12/24 volt lights. I'm hoping I can get 4-5 hours on a battery. The way I rigged it I will have 4 on one battery and 6 on the other.

Airboats have been out for weeks here. Of course they ain’t shooting anything, just making it harder to kill fish. Friend went Saturday said they shot.... 2 and saw less than 10. Water is 58-60 degrees so still a few weeks out here.

Man, I need to get out and shoot some fish. Been a couple years. Soon as I'm settled in my new house, It's ON!
Just need to make friends with one of you guys with a boat haha.

Used to run 6 LED lights. 50w lights on 2 batteries will run 6-8 hrs.
Nothing more peaceful than being on the water at night and all you hear is the hum of the trolling motor. No fans, No generators

Just getting around to posting. Had two great redfish trips over the past few weeks of bowfishing down in Southern Louisiana. So far got 70 reds on the boat. Two weeks ago I went on a 5 night bowfishing trip. The first two nights it was just me and my dog. I set a personal record of a solo redfish limit in 27 minutes. We limited every night that trip and finished with 50 reds. Went back out last week for a three night trip. Was pretty windy a couple nights, but managed to shoot 20 reds. Looking forward to the sheepshead moving in and more redfish action.

Nice!!!
What part of southern LA? East, west, central?
My normal redfish holes near Madison Bay are not producing well enough to commit to making the run just yet.

Central, somewhere south of Houma The red's have been in the marsh all winter. If you got a surface drive and a few lights you'll be good to go. I find they will start to move out soon, but for now they are stacked up. I try to fish for them and get nothing, but I turn on the lights and drive the same spots and the fish are everywhere.

last week, i saw no less than 10,000 juvenile gator gar.

WOW!!! That is sooooooo ridiculously disgraceful!!! Heck, I have seen 10,000 three footers on that body of water.............in just two days! I hope they have open hearings on this issue. I have zero qualms about speaking to the commission on the record!
Let me know when that water comes up, I will cancel my schedule and head your way. Oh, Jillian said that is what she wants to do this summer. I think the 5 footer she missed is haunting her.........LOL!!!

Its a plan. I think you should speak but if its like times past, the decisions will be made regardless of what the public says. I hear there will be a propaganda push promoting alligator gar starting soon anyway.

As for Jillian.. she hit that gar dead center.

I am afraid you are probably right. But being on the public record opens other opportunities in this silly fight concerning alligator gar on the Trinity. YES, other bodies of water in Texas MAY have issues with numbers but the lower Trinity sure isn't one of them. Ray Charles can determine that!!!
There is a reason why various counties have harvest limits on whitetails...(east texas versus hill country)....it is odd that EXACT formula does not apply for alligator gar.........hum!

LMAO, yes I think that is why she wants one sooooo bad!!! The boys at Auburn cant believe she bowfishes......lol!!

Two weeks ago I went on a 5 night bowfishing trip. The first two nights it was just me and my dog. I set a personal record of a solo redfish limit in 27 minutes. We limited every night that trip and finished with 50 reds. Went back out last week for a three night trip. Was pretty windy a couple nights, but managed to shoot 20 reds. Looking forward to the sheepshead moving in and more redfish action.

That looks like a great time. Do you bowfish guide down there?

I don't guide, just take the friends and family out. I do know the guide you should go with though if your interested. Our set up is nothing special. Lights only on the right side and front of boat. Tried to find a recent picture, but this is all I got. Get's the job done.
