You can call me Captain Nate

I am a US Coast Guard certified captain. I've been operating for 7 years and run a crazy fun aerial bowfishing charter on the Illinois river near Peoria, Illinois.  When the river floods I offer traditional bowfishing.  Besides bowfishing, I also offer river tours for those who just want to go out, have a fun day in the sun, and see the jumping Asian Carp up close and personal. Contact me today to schedule your trip.


Boat updates

 I  added a third toon to Carpocalypse turning her into a tri-toon.  It makes for a much smother and stable ride for bowfishing. It's a much more efficient asian carp killing machine.

Over the winter I will be looking to update my boat to shoot 5 and possibly 6 people at the same time.  Right now it shoots 4.  I can still only take 6 clients out at one time via USCG rules.  



"A day of  'bowfishing asian carp' with Capt. Nate is tough to describe. He tries his best to inform you of what's in store, but NOTHING he says can prepare you for the amount of shooting, excitement, fun, and laughter involved in a day on the water with him. He knows exactly what to do to get the fish to jump, and knows where to find them. There is rarely a dull moment on this boat, and his training as a captain ensures that you will have a safe day." - Angelo from NY


I told him I would give him every opportunity to stab an asian carp with my trident Poseidon.  I feel as though I held up my end of the bargain.  In his defense, I think he was laughing too hard and lost focus. It also did not help the bowfishing string got caught on Poseidon.  

Flying Fish to the Face in Slow Motion

I got the chance to work with Planet Slow MO.  Needless to say they were able to capture some amazing footage as they always do.  Subscribe to there channel and check out the rest of there stuff.  You won't regret it.
