Default New Here: Bowfishing in the Pass?

Hi all, my husband and I just purchased a tracker grizzly rigged for bow fishing earlier this year. We are from Louisiana, but have a camp in Pass Christian. We are hoping to do some bow fishing in Bay St. Louis. I haven't seen many others out there doing this, so i'm just starting to wonder is bow fishing in the bay a thing?

Welcome to the Bull, glad to have you both. I fish the bay regularly and I cant say I've seen anyone bow fishing. I think it would be good along the north shoreline grass when the water clears up.

Reds. We've only been once so far and didn't have any luck, but the water has not been very clear. Do you know the regulations on bowfishing reds in Mississippi? I've searched but found lots of conflicting information.

I am not familiar with the regs on bowfishing any species, but I do know of a couple spots for both in late summer months. as previously mentioned the north shore near DuPont would be worth checking out, when the rain isn't insane like it's been. not far from there just north of mouth of the wolf would be worth checking out, along with the bayou that parallels the wolf (Delisle?? maybe..). On the east side of the Henderson bridge there's a bayou that goes north where Yacht club drive ends. not sure the name of that bayou either but I've seen a bunch of big gar around the mouth of it. pending water clarity, that's where I'd try the stick and string. good luck!
