Where It All Began
Well it first started when I was down in New Orleans. I was looking for something to do besides the mundane normal touristy thing. So I found my self searching the internet for fun thing to do in New Orleans, that is when I stumbled across something called Bowfishing. After looking at the pictures I immediately knew this was something I needed to do. IT combines archery and fishing, two of my favorite things. I called Nawlins Bowfishing and booked a trip right away. When I first arrived at the launch i was a little nervous as i did not know what to expect. But the captain and dock hand were very helpful and reassuring. When we jumped onto the boat i was surprised how calm the water was and easily the boat skimmed across the water. It didn’t take us long to reach our first spot, after a few minutes of instructions and hearing the phrase “Aim LOW” about a hundred times we started slowing moving across the water very slowly with everyone intently staring into the water. It didn’t take long for the deck hand to spot a red fish. I took aim, held my breath and fired an arrow it pierced the water quickly and stuck about 12″s into the mud. I missed. In fact i missed a lot it took me about five trys before I hit my first fish, but after I did I was hooked. I loved every minute of it, every shot, every hit and even every miss. It was amazing. I think we fished about four or five hours; the time flew by while we filled our ice chest. When it was time to pick up I was both physically and mentally tired but I didn’t care. It was so much fun. I have already booked my next trip to New Orleans and am planning on bringing my nephew with bow fishing I cannot wait to go again. I even have been practicing empty 2 liter bottles in my pool. I will be ready next time. Just remember if you are ever in New Orleans make sure you check out New Orleans Bowfishing and remember to “AIM LOW.”
