Asian Carp Bowfishing Guide Charter Peoria, IL

About Us



 I am an aerial bowfishing guide located on the Illinois river near Peoria, IL. Depending on the conditions, we also do traditional bowfishing as well. I will be running out of Carl Spindler Marina and Campground in East Peoria. It's close to good food, lodging, and a Bass Pro Shops. Our goal is to have you laughing harder than you’ve ever laughed before.


  
   I grew up hunting and fishing and from my experience, I can assure you that a trip with me is one you will never forget. The easiest way to explain this sport is by combining your best hunting and fishing experience and then throwing in a bunch of steroids. The hardest decision you will ever face is which fish to shoot at first!

The Boat

Asian carp jump because of vibration and water turbulance.  This is why aluminum boats with two stroke motors work the best. With that said, I use an all aluminum deck boat powered by a 115 hp two stroke outboard motor. I also use an all aluminum pontoon boat powered by a 90 hp two stroke. These boats get the fish popping! I personally customized both boats specifically for this sport. I modified my boat to allow four people to shoot at the same time. As well as one spear fisherman in the front. The rest may comfortably hang out on padded bench seats, enjoying refreshments, blasting their choice of music over the sound system  and watching their buddies slay carp. It truly does not get any better than that! Even if bowfishing isn't your thing, or you have kids that want to join in the fun, I also have nets they can use to catch the fish as they jump. 

Gear
I use compound bows with AMS retrievers. They are set up to snap shoot as well as hold back and wait for the perfect shot.  I have both adult and child rigs set up for right and left handers.  I also added a crossbow designed just for bowfishing and a spear I call Poseidon.     

Safety

As an EMT there is nothing more important to me than personal safety. A trip with the Carp Hunters is an extreme experience, and some of these foreign invaders can grow to be over 40 pounds and jump up to 10 feet in the air. This is why I designed a custom net system that wraps around the boat to keep everyone safe and slime free.  We also have safety straps for the shooters to ensure that during the excitement of the hunt no one can fall out.

I personally customized each boat specifically for this sport. Three shooters sit on the deck in the back of the boat, and the rest may comfortably hang out on padded bench seats, enjoying refreshments, blasting their choice of music over the sound system  and watching their buddies slay carp.
