Bowfishing 6lb Jack in Florida

Finally! I have been DYING to shoot a big Jack. About a month ago I shot my first Jack ever, but it was not very large. Since then, I have shot 2 large Jacks but because of their power, they managed to pull themselves off the arrow before I was able to reel them in - But not this time...

I started "The Long Con" for several reasons but the biggest being my desire to shoot a big Jack. Today started like any other with my chopping up hot dogs and tossing them into the Canal. Usually I'll do this while waiting with the bow, just in case a Jack comes by. Well guess what? 3 of them did, and they flew by too fast for me to even draw the bow. I immediately tossed in more hot dogs and waiting about 20 minutes with the camera rolling.

After it was clear they weren't coming back (I guess they don't like hot dogs) I ran into the garage and pulled a bag of chum that I bought from Walgreens (review coming shortly). I loaded the chum up and put it into the water where I've been feeding the fish. About 10 minutes later... BANG! finally got a big Jack.

The other 2 large Jacks that got off the line were shot broadside, this one was from above and for whatever reason, that did the trick.

As always, this was shot with my Cajun Sucker Punch Bow, an AMS Retriever Pro (Reel) and filmed with a GoPro Hero 3 attached to a Muzzy Reel Seat. Check below for more pictures and check back soon for some other videos...
