    went with Chris SantAngelo. cell 863-634-7803. his dad owns/operates "Seminole Prairie Safaris", a little SE of the town of Okeechobee. Chris manages the high fence part of operation. i wasn't part of this shoot. Chris sent me this pic a few days ago. My son and i shot fish with him last spring during my sons spring break when he shot a gator and axis deer also. had an absolute blast as we had never bow fished before. we shot 30-40 tilapia and missed at least that many. will do it again with Chris in 2019. i believe it was $400 for 4 hours. He told me he's building a new airboat for bowfishing.

    caught a lot of nice largemouth with a guide Chris recommended if you're interested in doing that. fished live shiners. not much to it once you get the knack for when to set the hook.
