Just a short 30 minute drive to the west is the mighty Mississippi river and Reelfoot Lake. To the east is the Tennessee River and Kentucky Lake. EXTREME BowFishing is situated between arguably the best BowFishing waters in the world.
Kentucky Lake was chosen as the site for the 2007 Bowfishing Association of America World Championship. “It’s the Super Bowl of the top bowfishermen in the country,” said Mark Lee, president of the BAA. “We’re excited by what we hear about Kentucky’s rough fish population, especially the big carp species like the bighead, and the big buffalos too,” said Lee. Kentucky BAA member Mike Whelan of Shelbyville wrote the bid for Kentucky. “I’ve bowfished Barkley and Kentucky lakes for years and I knew what they offered for such a big tournament, mainly lots of rough fish and all the shoreline you could ever hope to bowfish on a body of water,” said Whelan. “It will also show that bowfishing is not only fun, but helpful by removing invasive rough fish from our waters.” Some species of rough fish can easily exceed 50 pounds.
Reelfoot Lake- has approximately 13,000 acres of water and the average depth is only 5.2 feet. The deepest area is only 18' deep. Due to the shallow, fertile water and the abundance of natural cover. Reelfoot Lake is one of the world's greatest natural fish hatcheries. Approximately 54 species of fish can be found in the lake. With an average depth of a less than 6 foot this lake is a BowFishing
paradise. Because the lake is surrounded by State managed water sheds (large lakes) designed to keep sediment out of Reelfoot Lake, the water stays much clearer year round. Reelfoot lake has an abundance of "rough fish" to harvest including- Freshwater Drum
Paddle Fish, Bowfin, Long-Nosed Gar, Short-Nosed Gar, Bigmouth Buffalo, Smallmouth Buffalo and Common Carp. Some species of rough fish can easily exceed 50 pounds.
