Have to check City Ordinance. Dallas has an ordinance about "no projectiles", which keeps us off of Ray Hubbard. Except that I have more control over my "projectile" than most fishermen I know. What's more dangerous, my arrow aiming practically straight down away from everyone or they guy casting a double treble hook plug toward people on the bank?

Just curious but what exactly would you she shooting for? I don't bowfish but I had a strange encounter at the dog park off Allen parkway near the water. Saw a large fun break the water a few times in a curling motion. Almost like a serpent. I looked high and low on the Internet and couldn't find anything that matched the description. The closes thing I found was called a bowfin but I don't think that's possible

I wouldn't doubt that you saw a bowfin in there. There are tons of sunfish that are an available food source for them in the bayous. I was particularly going to target carp, for alligator gar bait. I catch big catfish out of the bayous. There's numerous species swimming around in there. I've seen common carp, grass carp, sunfish, bass, catfish, gar, big *** plecos (like 5 pounds), tons of mullet...

Is Brays Bayou considered a City of Houston Park? The only statute that would pertain to archery arrows is in regards to city parks. If it is just part of the bayou that is not a designated park, you shoud be fine. Plus the City of Houston police will usually give you a warning before they ticket to you, as long as you have your fishing liscense and don't lie to them about what you are doing. But remember you are going to have people watching you, so don't give bowfishing a bad name. Put safety first and don't shoot anything you are not taking with you.

Not sure but I thought a projectile was not attached? Wouldn't a lure be a projectile if not?
An arrow with a string is generally same as lure on string

If you are a member of the NRA you can contact their legal department and they will research it for you for free.
