Video: Bowfishing Silver Mullet in Cape Coral (FL)

In this video I shoot a Silver Mullet that was close to shore at the bottom. Silver Mullet are different than the more common Stripped (Jumping) Mullet. They are not as long or oval as the other types.

I shot this Mullet with the first Bowfishing bow I had ever owned which actually was't a Bowfishing bow at all. It was a Browning bow that had an AMS reel on it.

There are 2 key differences between a true Bowfishing bow and a regular bow that has a reel installed:

  1. "Regular" bows will rust because they are not designed to be exposed to water so often
  2. The poundage is very high on a regular bow but for bowfishing you want it anywhere from 30-50lbs. If the poundage is too high on a bowfishing bow the arrow may skip up and not penetrate the water.
