I am relatively new to sport! Though it does not seem like it? Started in April of last year and now have 3 bowfishing bows and two boats (14' SeaArk & 16' toon). Now that deer season is winding down I am anxious to shoot fish and I noticed there are night time tournaments in February in North Alabama. I thought the fish would be deep? Where do you find them in February? And I know I'm NEW, but I know in the water! Where in water? How deep? What type of bottom? What type of structure? Thanks for the help!

I prefer the winter time for bigger fish. I find them in the same places I do in the spring, just seem to be bigger ones in the winter.

From now until late March is my favorite time of the year to shoot fish. No bugs, cool nights can't beat that. We find them in the same places as we do in the summer.

Yea same here the grinnel shooting is really good early in the year in the sloughs around here. We usually get into alot of spotted gar too.
