If at first your bow explodes, get another one, then get redemption …
Cody Moen is a junior in high school, and a bowfishing maniac. Cody has fished (hunted?) most every pond, stream, and lake in the Central Florida area that is a target rich environment for tilapia. When Cody is not slinging arrows, he loves playing ice hockey (yes, we have that in Florida). Also, he enjoys just being out in nature, whether at the beach or in the woods. On this episode, Cody shares an epic bowfishing trip when he and friends first got the boat stuck, but then got busy sticking fish – LOTS of ’em.
Cody grew up surf fishing and shark fishing around Florida. He has recently gotten into freshwater fishing for largemouth bass. But by far, Cody’s favorite fishing pole is a compound bow, and he has several fish fry’s under his belt to prove just how good he has gotten at this sport. You can follow Cody’s insane bowfishing adventures with fellow members of the Flying Plecos Bowfishing Team (including Justin from Episode 001 and Nicky from Episode 004) on National Pro Staff (NPS) and Instagram at the links above.
