a first for me

this morning, sunday, i watched 2 guys waist deep a 100 yds off the beach in pass christian, Ms. (gulf coast) wade fishing when 2 jet skis with mississippi wild life and fisheries on them rode right up to the fisherman standing in the water and checked licenses and fish. Crazy !!!

pompano

caught a big pompano at Cat island in 3′ of water, off Bay St Louis. Only caught one. At first I thought it was a small jack crevalle, but at Long Beach launch, Mississippi Wildlife & Fisheries were there and confirmed it was a pompano.

barnacles

does anyone know from experience how much +/- speed is lost on a boat (24 cc) with barnacles and seaweed covering the bottom ?

new laws

Effective Monday 4 days ago, Mississippi enacted 2 spec trout changes. Min length went from 13 in to 15; and a captain or guide cannot have a limit for himself on his charter trip. He is allowed to catch fish for his customer’s limit.

lures

anyone use Jack’s Juice; shrimp flavor ? Its a spray for lures. On a public pier, the guy using it on his plastics caught as many specs as the person with live shrimp.

crab trap trout

Second time this summer—a spec was inside one of my crab traps. I put out 6 for recreational crabbing. I guess that’s not unusual ?
