Trips start at $330 per person.

We strive to make your trip the experience of a lifetime. Whether beginner or Avid Bowfisherman, we will tailor the trip to your exact needs.

You will need a valid Louisiana fishing license. You will be required to sign a waiver. Your are welcome to bring your own equipment but we have right/left handed lever bows at your disposal!

Please specify how many left and right-handed hunters so we can bring the correct equipment.

We also recommend that you bring an epipen if you are allergic to any insects and please let your guide know.

We prefer to hunt at night with a warm up on smaller species for the first couple of hours. We will then spend the rest of the night pursuing the most formidable predator in fresh water, the Alligator Gar! These fish are extremely tough and it is not uncommon for arrows to simply bounce off! Proper arrow placement and adhering to the guides instruction will definitely improve your odds! For the last four years, we enjoyed a 95% shot opportunity ratio on Trophy Alligator Gar!

The best question of all! Don’t be afraid to ask a lot of questions. Do a lot of research. Ask for referrals. Call the manufacturers and see who they recommend! A professional guide does nothing else, so beware of part timers looking to make an extra buck. Compare websites and the quality of fish taken by “customers”! Many of the fish you see on competitors websites were taken by the guides and their buddies.

Most important, guides that routinely boat large fish for their customers have of an intimate knowledge of a select few bodies of water! Beware of claims to know where big fish are all over the state! This should send up red flags immediately! Would you hire a Falcon Lake bass guide to take you Stiper fishing on Texoma?

A guide is only as good as his last trip. Don’t be afraid to ask for recent pictures with dates. Also, ask for stats. What are the odds for success? What is the average number of fish seen/taken? A good guide will also take into account the experience level in the boat and tailor the trip to the hunters! Don’t forget to take the boat into account. Especially if you have a big group of hunters. A big boat is a stable and comfortable boat.

Please feel free to call us with any questions. We at Extreme Bowfishing look forward to seeing you on the water.
