This boat is equipped with a 65 gallon and a 15 gallon live well and is set up to perfectly bowfish, sucker gig, or line and pole fish. We run Minn Kota trolling motors and the latest and greatest Garmin electronics to locate the fish and navigate the lakes. The boat is powered by a Yamaha motor and can easily carry 8 people plus fishing gear in any water from choppy open lakes to shallow backwaters.

Operator since 2019
To introduce ourselves, we are Firehouse Bowfishing & Outdoors, LLC located in Rogersville, Missouri. The name originated from two things the original four of us had in common. We love bowfishing and we are all firefighters. The official team started in 2015, but the name became necessary when we decided to open a fishing guide business. Our Bushiness cover most of the big lakes and water ways in Missouri to include Table Rock, Taneycomo, Bull Shoals, Stockton, Truman, and Pomme de Terre.
