Team Line ’em Up – 2018 U.S. Open Bowfishing Championship Winners

The top team at this year’s event was local team, Team Line ’em Up. The Oklahoma boys weighed in 20 Gar, with a weight totaling 424.25 pounds, earning the big check in the amount of $25,000.

The Big Fish Champions were Team Shoot ’em All. They shot a 43.4 pound Grass Carp, earning them a check for $5,000 and the Big Fish Championship Belt.

How far do the teams travel for this event?

One team, Team Nocturnal Addiction, traveled all the way from Pennsylvania to compete at this year’s event. The team won the Longest Gar category of the tournament, finished  17th overall, and won a brand new Tracker 1860 bowfishing boat. The trip from PA paid off big for these guys, no doubt.
