Very nice.
How deep were they?
Did you use your boat in the salt water?

Most were about 2 feet deep. Yep, we used my boat. Flushed the outboard for 15 minutes yesterday and will take the troller apart tonight and clean. The whole boat is covered in salt and ray blood, so it will be a big job cleaning it.

Very cool trip and story!

Hey, I also read in another part of the journal that you're using the lumenocks now. I've thought about trying them. Do they fit in the Uni-nock adapters, or do you need something else?

They fit the uni nock adapters, but you have to drill them out and into the arrow a bit. We don't have it all perfect yet. They work great for a few shots then get harder to stay lit, I guess because they loose their good contact. Oh ya, you have to sand the top edge of the adapter so it is not gold anymore.

I think that ray look familiar! I think Mike missed him. That was funny I told you that you would kill one before you got a chance to meet us by the island! There were a ton of them there for sure. Great time with y'all.

I've been bowfishing shark and stingrays for years in the Chincoteague, VA area. They are a blast. I was looking at some of your pics and happen to think I noticed a compound bowlaying on the deck of the boat did you guys use compounds in Saltwater? If you did you might regret that move. 2 guys my dad used to bowfish for rays with brought their brand new compound on one trip and needless to say it was the last time they ever used them. Well looks like you guys had a blast.
