Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

We at Shore Thing Thing Charters hope everyone is having a safe and Happy Mardi Gras. We have been able to get a few days, and the fishing has been fun. Earlier in the week, I was able to take a nice young fellow and his buddy down to the marsh. The fog made our day much longer. We had to wait for the fog to lift and come in early to avoid it in the afternoon. Jonathan Summers and his friend Landis were able get in on some fantastic red fishing down in the duck ponds. Finally got to see the big packs of reds. We literally had fish swimming all around the boat. We only fished one shore line and we could see the fog rolling back in. We tucked tail and ran. Still got the boys plenty of reds and had an absolute blast with these two whippa snappa's.

Like most February's, we have spent most of our days playing nearshore, in MS Waters. Capt Jimmy Ray an I were able to get the Owen Bachelor party off the dock, TWICE! These boys have been with us several times over the years. They were actually on the best flounder trip in Shore Thing History. Well, we tried to go to the marsh out of our dock in Bayou Caddy. The winds kicked up, way up and we made it about half a mile out. The commercial crabbers were even turning around, so we had to think fast. Since the bachelor party boys had already started having "big boy drinks", we had to move the party. We put the boats on the trailers. Had our own make shift Mardi Gras parade, and ran across town to the Bay. With the east winds, we were able to fish calm water, all day long. Capt Matt crews rescheduled, so he jumped in the boat with Capt Jimmy. Two chaperons were actually needed on that boat. Turned out to be a nice save. The Bay had enough black drum, sheepshead, and small flounders to keep us entertained. It was a long day, having to move the party, but we made it work.   

Sunday I had my new buddy, Tom Jackson and his son Eli out for a quick near shore trip. We left late to take advantage of the warm temps and moving tide. The last few trips, we have been able to use live shrimp, but all we could get was dead. The bite was still good in the Bay. We had a nice mess of sheepshead, and made it back in time to watch the Super Bowl. The water has been in the low 50's, so the bite has been very soft. The braided line is a must.

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

Capt Matt has been out the most the last couple of days. Boy wonder has been making easy work of the sheepshead, black drum and red fish. None of the boats have been down to the LA Marsh, but we plan to be down there when mother nature deals us better hand of cards. Everything the last week or so has been bouncing around the MS Sound and Bay St Louis. The most action has been off of the shrimp on the bottom. We have all been burning through plenty of tackle fishing the rubble and pilings.
Capt Kenny an I were out over the weekend. I was with the Southern crew, and he had a last minute booking from the Carol House Bed & Breakfast in Old Town BSL. Kenny stayed on the reefs and we bounced around every thing we could think of. Slow and steady won the race for Kenny and his crew, pretty sure they out fished us 5 to 1 staying put. With the cold n dirty water, not leaving fish to find fish seems to be the only way to play it. They were able to get plenty for dinner, in the way of sheepshead, puppy drum and red fish.
Had two very cool things happen at the Bay St Louis Harbor. On the way in, we got to see Thomas Genin, owner of the THE BLIND TIGER,  in his new 32 Twin Vee. I would imagine he is planning some deep water adventures. Time will tell...
The coolest thing happened on our way out of the harbor. Capt Kenny an I noticed a young fellow, hooked into something big off of the harbor fishing pier. He could barely turn the fish with the light tackle he was using. We could tell the little dude was nervous he was gonna loose his big fish, so we asked if he needed help. He did not hesitate to scream yes! I put down the trolling motor and went in for the assist. Got his monster sheepshead in the net, and handed it up to his dad. They gave me my net back, and before I could pull away, the little dude was yelling for me stop. I looked up at him and he had his hand out. He said, "I wanna shake your hand". Kinda reminded me of someone I knew 20-somehting years ago...
 The water seems to be getter colder and muddier, but they are closing the spill way. Things will hopefully be back to normal before long. If anyone did not already see it, we put together a lil video of our favorite winter time activity. Check it out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pB0TwyqS_Wo  a tribute to the one an only Sheepshead.

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

We were able to get several trips off the dock this past week. It was a little chilly, but the fishing was good and we all just layered up. Monday was the coldest ride of the week. We had to run out to the Cat Island house for a photo shoot for an upcoming article in Magnolia Magazine. Photographer Jamie Bates and myself braved made the run across in the 33 degree temperature. Wasn't that bad, and the "Mayor of Cat Island" Walter Gaudin even had a hot cup of coffee waiting on us. Jamie hit the ground runnin, he was busy with his cameras getting the shots he needed. Walter an I talked shop, for what looks like a very busy year out at the island for Shore Thing and "The Mayor". Never wet a line, but it is hard to have a bad time out at Cat Island.
Tuesday we put the finishing touches on our upcoming TV show with Gulf South Outdoors. Andrew Whitman needed a few sound bites to add to his video footage of our killer trip to the LA Marsh we took a lil while back. The show should be airing in the next few weeks but we will give yall a heads up when it airs. Trying not spoil it, but you will have to see it to believe what we did. He said the footage is incredible.
Wednesday, I was able to take full advantage of the cool temps and calm seas. Had my pal Capt Eli Underhill and his paw-in-law Boyd on board. Capt Eli runs a commercial fishing operation out of Sitka, Alaska. He spends half the "warm months" up there and the cold months down here. Our daughters go to school together and we have been trying to get on the water together for months. Schedules finally allowed us to get him and Mr Boyd out for a fun easy day in the Bay. Usually I get my ears chewed off with questions, but I did not give poor Eli with the questions. Eli commercially fishes for salmon, halibut, herring and a bunch of other species. I am fascinated with Alaska, commercial fishing, and different methods for catching different species of fish. It was hard to geta ll my questions answered, the bite we were on was pretty fast paced. We caught plenty of sheepshead, but released all of them. Eli has a freezer full of fish and has nothing but respect for all fisheries. Mr Boyd got a nice slot red midway through the morning and it was the only one he wanted for supper. I am very much looking forward to getting Capt Eli down in the LA Marsh this spring before he heads back to Alaska. That dude can fish.
Friday, the Mighty Capt Matt had a group in from Indiana, the Landry crew. They were "snow birding" down south and wanted to wet a line. They had a little more wind to deal with, but were able to find plenty of protected water in the Bay. Matt said it took a couple of moves to find a bite, but once he found a nest of sheepshead, he said it was every single cast. The boys only kept a couple for supper, and wanted to break out the fly rods. Matt took them along some protected shorelines and 5 minutes into it, they were able to put their very first MS fly caught red in the boat. Besides the fly rods, all the near shore action has been with live or dead shrimp on the bottom. Going through plenty of tackle, fishing structure, but that is why bring plenty extra.
Saturday, after weeks of rescheduling, I was able to get my man John Calagaz and his brother in law Mikey out to the LA Marsh. I honestly think this is the 3rd or 4th attempt we have made. Finally got a good weather Saturday and went for it. John is a sight fishing junkie and the conditions were almost picture perfect. The Marsh was alive with ducks and geese flying all day long. The nutria rats were out in full force as well. The cold weather has killed all the algae in the ponds, and the water is about as clean we see it all year. It was almost too clear, the fish were very skittish. It was quick draw casting, because even at liberal distance, the fish would bolt. Finding them was not a problem, we saw tons of slot fish in just about every pond we got in. We did not give the fish any mercy, every hook was either tipped with a live cocahoe or with dead shrimp. We got their 10 and released several smaller ones. Not even gonna try to put a number on how many we saw and missed. Always a fun day with John, especially with awesome sight fishing conditions.

Take A Kid Fishing

Latimer, MS USA

So based on your expertise of the "other" site.  you following their posts and what's going on there.

"They NEVER take kids fishing"  this is clearly untrue about many that post but you have done your research so you must be right.

While you "take kids all the time" but don't mention it in an online report since September of LAST year.  (You didn't post about taking a kid fishing on a fishing forum so obviously it doesnt happen, right?)

aside from all that b.s.  why the need to even talk about the "other" site?  does it make you feel better about yourself?  Are you jealous?  unsure what personal wrong was done to you... but it's sad

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

We have been able to have a little bit of fun the last couple weeks. The winds, seas, fog and chill have kept us on land lately, but we have been able to make a few trips. The last couple of trips have been on, have been in MS Waters. The fishing has been fantastic, with good and steady action. The majority of what we have been catching, is big ole sheepshead. We are seeing a couple drum, and flounder, but mostly big sheeps.
Capt Matt and I ran the Clarke crew right before the end of 2015. The guys were looking for an easy day in close. The fishing was good and we were able to give our live shrimp a very noble death. Mike on my boat was our top gun. Even on a decent bite, he was able to put a hurtin on the big sheeps and drums. We sent the guys back to Yazoo with a good pile of sheeps, drum, and even a nice red.
This past week, we finally got a break in the winds, and took full advantage of it. Had my ole offshore buddy Jerry Travis, His wife Sandra and their buddy Byron. Not a breath wind, but the fog was so thick, you could barely see 50 feet. We had to trailer to another launch and idle to a safe spot. Luckily the big sheeps were hungry and plentiful. It only took about 2 and a half hours before we could not close the fish box lid. The fog never lifted, and we had to idle back to the launch. Jerry and I have been on some crazy trips over the years, and now a shut out fog sheepshead slaughter will be added to our collection.
Capt Jimmy Ray and myself were able to pull off a Hail Mary for JT Rowell and the Nebraska Boys. We spent the first several hours of the morning, watching the rain fall. The last time these boys were with us, it was in January and we hammered the red fish down in the LA Marsh. They were up for whatever and happy to wait out the weather.  JT just said to call him when the rain stopped and they would be there. Around 10AM we loaded up and headed out. Capt J-Ray actually found a couple keeper trout on the reefs. My crew was out for blood, so went straight to flocks of sheep. Young Zach on our boat, was our top producer. That young man is mad at the fish and it showed. When the smoke cleared, our boat and Capt Jimmy's boat had close to 40 sheeps. There was even a couple flounder and trout mixed in. We got in very late, but were able to make it to Capt Ray aka "Slay Ray" surprise 50th Birthday Party. It was one heck of a party! Happy Birthday Slay Ray!!!
It is winter time, and for us, it is a lot of last minute weather calls. If it is safe and productive, we will fish it. There is plenty of fun to get into this time of year, you just have to take advantage of it when you can.

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

We at Shore Thing Fishing Charters wish everyone a very safe, happy and productive 2016. For the last few years, we have been putting together a list of dealers, products and services we use that may help you all. Collectively, our guides book near 1,000 trips a year! These are the people, companies and things that help us do that. Enjoy...

ENGINES AND MAINTENANCE
All 7 of our boats run Yamaha four stroke engines, the majority of which we purchased from Atlantic Marine (228-467-2847), in Bay St Louis. Bobby an Emily Lamb are a pleasure to work with. They can help with the purchasing, financing, service and warranty on boats and engines. They are the Yamaha warranty center for our boats.
We store our boats at THE BOATHOUSE, in Lakeshore, MS. Sid Leblanc and the gang at the Boathouse have been taking care of our boats for close to a decade. Several times a year our guides and boats are spending 3-5 days out at Cat Island, and we need our equipment running smoothly. This is a small list of some of repairs/instillations the Boathouse Gang has done on our fleet this year: steering units, VHF Radios, bait pumps, bilge pumps, power poles, antennas, running lights, oil and filter changes. Sooner or later, just about everything on a boat is gonna break. We are very tough on our equipment, but we are able to work as hard as we do because of these people. Fast, fair priced, honest and do great work.

TRAILERS
Our boats are on the trailer everyday. Our guides dunk them in salt water twice a day, for hundreds and hundreds trips. There is only one name in the boat trailer department, SPORT TRAIL(228-467-1885) in Waveland, MS. Kevin Desselle and his crew are the best there is. We have NEVER missed a day of work because of trailer issues.

TROLLING MOTORS
We have been extremely pleased with Randy Deshamp at SHAMPS TROLLING MOTORS(228-234-6131) in Lizana, MS. I honestly have no clue how Randy can repair the trolling motors we bring to him, but he does it. He is a factory authorized warranty service center for Minnkota and Motorguide and can install/repair Power Poles and Talons. Good Dude!

TACKLE
Shore Thing Charters has been using Okuma reels for many years now. We mostly use spinning reels for our inshore charters. We have been very pleased with the: V-Series, RTX, Azores, Helios, Ceymar, Trio, and Epixor in the 30-40 class . We got to try out the new Inspira spinning reel this year, and it is amazing! We have used some of the bigger V-series, RTX and Azores in the 60-90 class for cobia and big sharks. They are absolutes beasts!
We use popping corks on almost every single trip for trout, redfish, and other species. In this department, there is nothing that comes close to the floats made by Boat Monkey. They are made in the USA with only the best components. They have an extra weight, for long casts, or casting into the wind.
When we have to buy tackle in the store, we can get everything we need at GUS'S in Slidell, LA. It is a specialty tackle shop with anything and everything you would ever need for any inshore trip. If they don't have it, they can order it.

REEL REPAIR
If you use a reel in salt water, it is going to break. Mr Ronnie Farrell with RONNIES REEL REPAIR(228-323-0157) in Bay St Louis, MS is our go to guy. He has saved us thousands of dollars cleaning and repairing reels that we thought could never be saved. He is extremely fast on the turn around, fair priced, and honest. He will tell you if it is not worth saving. He works on all makes and models of reels.

PARTS
A&A Marine Hardware(228-452-5600) in Pass Christian, MS has been a great place for parts. You can get all the things needed for rigging, repairing and cleaning your boat here. Friendly staff and they can order just about anything you would ever need for boats of any size.

These are the people that keep us working, doing what we love. They take great care of us, and we hope they can help you. Best of luck to everyone on an off the water in 2016!

Good evening palm beach,
    I used to fish the winte tolling the Jordan back
before Katrina and haven't been back. But the
norm for trolling for trout fo mr was go as slow as
you can to troll. The slower the better because in
really cold weather Speck's caint move very
quickly. Largely lathargic until the temp climbs
back up. But if there is frost on the windshield I
knew it was going to be a great day.. The colder
the better. I used a Rattletrap with a Minnie  
rattle trap to trail. Silve with Blue Back. You
might use a green sparkle Beatle to change o on
the bait if they didn't want the rattletrap. Bumping
your baaing on the bottom. Also the deeper the
better in the rivers. ,ore than likely your deeper
wholes on those really cold mornings. Good luck
hope this helps.
           Tight Lines,
                 Sow Trout

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

From everyone at Shore Thing Fishing Charters, we hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas. Most of the boys have been either spending some much needed time with their families, or in the woods. Capt Alex has been doing horrible things to the ducks up in the delta. I believe he is the only of us enjoying this windy and rainy weather. Captains Kenny, Ray, Darrien, and Jimmy are doing well in the woods. At press time, Capt Darrien has the biggest buck so far, a big ole dandy 8 point. Capt Kenny has been seeing plenty of big deer up in the delta. He is patient though , and holding out for a big boy this year.
Capt Matt and myself have been holding down the fort. The weather has not been stellar, but we did make it out over the holiday weekend. I had my good friends David Bassett, his son-in-law Chris Carpenter, and his young uns Gavin and Morgan. We had to keep it close to home due to the thick fog, and stout east winds. The youngsters did not seem to mind the short boat ride, and Morgan even got a fish on her first cast! From then on it, it was a bit of organized chaos. Chris barely got fish, he was all about everyone else having fun. He was helping me, but he an I could barely keep the hooks baited. We even had to get young Gavin to help us net a few of the fish. It was almost entirely big sheepshead, but we did find a couple of puppy drum. Only fished a couple hours, but ended with almost 30 sheepsheads and puppy drum.
With rough seas, fluctuating temperatures, red tides, and fresh water, it was nice to fill up the fish box and prove that there are still a few fish out there... Now more than ever, we are just picking our days and playing it safe. If the weather is not looking right, we either reschedule or cancel. I can only imagine once we get into a typical winter weather pattern, we will see many more fishable days in between the cold fronts. Until that happens, we will be watching the weather, playing in the woods, and enjoying our family time.

Headed "east" of O.S. this morning, fished with live shrimp under a 2' cork. Nothing! Saw several fisherman trolling, and catching a few trout. I am new to this kind of fishing but willing to try.  What do I need? Type of plastic bait, size of jig head, bounce of bottom or just a constant speed?  Any tip are greatly appreciated.

I've got one sit on top kayak that can
easily hold even your big buttox.  I fish
it with Willie sitting near the bow.  
It's very stable and can be fished
standing up.  It's really perfect for the
marsh.  So, at least give it a shot in
some of the shallower ponds and if you
don't like it, no biggie.

Thank you Mr. Bill, point well taken. It is more
like "when you run aground" if you fish the
marsh. I would not trust anyone who tells you
that they have never run aground in the marsh.
We will not be entering via crooked bayou in lake
Eugene,  but rather through Biloxi bayou on the
N. Side of the marsh.  I fished lake Eugene
around Thanksgiving during low tide and ran
aground leaving the N end of redfish bayou.  
Fortunately I found that my new catamaran
backs off the mud flats much easier than my old
mono hull.  The good water is all on the W side of
that N entrance btw lol. I will still heed your
advice and bring waders to get out and push as
well as a sleeping bag should that not work.

bellweather I use to fish that area back in the 80's. I'm sure much has changed but it it tricky back through there and lake eugene. very shallow. I suggest going exploring on a low tide that is rising, so if and when you run aground you can just wait on tide.

To the gentleman from OSprings doubting
successful trout fishing in BSL, what's the point?  
I don't know the fishermen posting but do know
numerous locals that do very well this time of
year in the bay.  The trout migrate annually
through the bay into the Wolf, Bayou Mallini,
Portage, La Croix,  and the Jordan.  I have not
taken the time to find the sweet spots myself but
saw a large ice chest full of trout a few weeks
ago caught in the bay by a dad and his 11, 9 and
7 year old.  
On a separate note, I am going to fish the biloxi
marsh from the 18th thru the end of the year
(weather permitting)as I am on vacation.  I am
trying to learn the biloxi bayou back to stump
lagoon area.   Anyone with knowledge of that
portion of the marsh is welcome to ride for free
and guide lol.
Merry xmass and keep the posts flowing.

Capt Sonny Schindler with Shore Thing Charters

Bay St Louis, MS USA

Actually got to get into the woods for the last couple of days. Did not get a deer, but saw plenty and had a great time with the gang from Guice Offshore. Before I headed north, we were able to get in some great trips.
Was able to run a trip for Capt Brian last weekend(his trip, his pics, his story). Just wanted to say thanks for the work.
Got some decent weather earlier in the week, and spent it down south in the Louisiana Marsh, playing with the red fish. The Cat Island crew were on board for one heck of a fun one. Dr Don Gaddy, Walter "The Mayor" Gaudin, and Mr Bob. Everything with these guys is a competition, and red fishing is no exception. From start to finish, they had running tally of who had the biggest red, the most, and who missed the most. Making matter worse, the two biggest reds were almost identical so it created quite the ruckus back at the dock.  Always a great time with my buddies from the Cat Island House.
Capt Matt an I ran some boys down to the LA Marsh for some picture perfect sight fishing weather. Both crews were bringing fly rods, but my crews fly fishing story was not your typical fly fishing experience...
Capt Matt had the Dewey 2 man crew. These young whippa snappers were flinging the bamboo all day long. With low water and plenty of sunshine, they were getting shots at reds all day. I know they had several in the boat, but released plenty. I had my my ole buddy Bragg Williams and Chef David. The area we were in was full of fish but we never found the big packs until later in the day. The last pond however, was slap full of reds in big packs. The pond was also loaded with nutria rats. No kidding, if we saw one nutria rat in that pond, there must have been over 50. Bragg had been holding off with his fly rod until we got into the big packs of fish. It is much easier to get one out of the packs and he didn't want to mess things up for Chef David. Well, you could see several large packs of reds coming down the bank for several hundred yards. Bragg got his fly rod out and picked out spoon fly. The fish were crushing everything in their path and we were set up perfectly. Bragg put the fly 10 feet in front of the feeding wave of reds and let it sink.
It was just a matter of letting the pack get to the fly. The fish were inches from the fly when we heard a rustling in the marsh grass along the bank. Out of no where, a big fat nutria rat hurled itself out of the marsh and landed dead center in the middle of the school of fish. It was like a 4 year old kid sprinting and doing a cannon ball into a pool. The fish bolted in every direction, some maybe died from a heart attack.
With only one cast under his belt, Bragg broke down his fly rod, and stowed it for the rest of the day. Competing with wind, water clarity and overcast skies are one thing. Having to compete with leaping rats into our fish was just too much. We all got a very good laugh about the whole thing, but we also got a new found hatred of those darn nutrias. Back at the dock, ALL the reds we cleaned were packed to the gills with mud minnows. Thought for sure we were gonna see a baby nutria in one of their bellies. I was  a little ticked off this time, not to see one...

Before this last front hit, we had a couple of boats out. Capt Jimmy Ray had a very bubbly bachelor party set up by Stephan Parker. The boys opted to stay in close and take a MS near shore trip. Capt JRay was happy to oblige. The last text I got from them was that they were moving from fish(sheephead, drum, whites, ground mullet and specks) to find some reds. Sounded the boys had some good clean fun, on the bachelor party.
I was out with my buddy Morgan Corey from The University of Southern Mississippi's Gulf Coast Research Lab(GCRL). They are doing a study Southern Flounder. What they really need is samples caught in December to February. Anyone who has fished for flounder knows how tough they can be those months. Most of them head offshore for the winter. Always up for a challenge, we headed out and fished the area we had done so well in early Nov. On our last trip, we had caught 14 and missed many many more. This trip would not be a repeat, or even come close. We fished several hours, and only had one small flounder shake off right at the boat. We did catch some trout and reds, but the flounders eluded us.
Speaking of challenging flounder fishing. USM GCRL is so serious about getting samples(Dec-Feb), they are giving local anglers a chance to win a 45 Quart Yeti Tundra cooler. Since southern flounder are not as numerous as they are during the warmer months, anyone has a shot at winning. For more info, check out this link(http://gcrl.usm.edu/mec/flounder.project.php) or email Mrs Morgan Corey at Morgan.corey@eagles.usm.edu the good folks at the lab do a lot for our local fisher folks. Please help them out if you can. Thanks

Bay St Louis, MS USA

Unbelievable couple of days on the water with some great people. Monday we had Andrew Whitman with Gulf South Outdoors. Shore Thing had done episodes with GSO in the past, but it has been a while since we have joined forces. Andrew is the new host/producer, and wanted to do something different. He has already done shows tuna fishing, kayak fishing, and even night fishing. When I told him about sight fishing for red fish, he was all over it. I don't want to spoil the episode, but we were using a very special bait to catch these fish, and he got some incredible footage.
Normally when you have a video camera on the boat, the weather and the fishing are tough. Lady luck was on our side, and we got perfect conditions. The water was gin clear, and the fish seemed to be everywhere. Andrew is a tech guy, and has the latest greatest high definition cameras with all the bells n whistles. He even had polarized lenses on his cameras, so the footage was "picture perfect". We got red fish to inhale baits right next to the boat, and he had the cameras rolling the entire time. Had to make one quick stop on the way home to grab some trout. Had to beg Andrew to put down the camera and wet a line. Glad I did, he only fished for a few minutes, but in the time, he hammered some trout, and got a bull red. Think he told me the show will not air for a couple weeks, and you will not believe what did.
Tuesday and Wednesday were very special trips. The Catch-A-Dream Foundation approached Shore Thing Charters to assist in making a wish come true for a special young lady. We jumped at the chance. For two days, Beth(16yrs old) her Dad Todd, Grampa Bobby and Catch-A-Dream representative Chuck joined us for some awesome fishing. Beth is from Kentucky and had never done any salt water fishing. She wanted to give it a try and maybe get a fish big enough to mount. We got fantastic weather on Tuesday, and literally spent the entire day on the water. Since Nikki Moon with Bay Town Inn in Bay St Louis was hosting them, we picked them up at the new Bay St Louis Harbor, across the street. You would have thought Beth had been salt water fishing for years, she went straight to work. Big sheephead, black drum, flounder and redfish were all caught by Beth and her family. We caught some good fish, but did not know if we had the found the fish she wanted for the wall.
Wednesday, we had a front rolling through, rain predicted to fall, chilly temps and wind. We stayed till dark Tuesday, thinking we would not be able to fish the next day. We got lucky and were able to fish several hours near Bayou Caddy and did very good. Not long after we started, Beth locked into what would be her wall hanger! She got a big slot red, with 7 spots on it, She knew when it hit the deck, it was the one. For several hours, she and her family stayed hooked up with keeper and throw back reds and trout. Honestly believe she would have stayed into the night if we let her. Very tough young lady.
Later that evening, we all met up at for an amazing presentation and delicious meal. Nikki Moon with Bay Town Inn assisted in setting all the meals up, and even joined us, along with the managers from the restaurant. The good folks at 200 North Beach Restaurant in downtown Bay St Louis put is in private room for a very special night for Beth and her family. Chuck gave a nice talk about his organization, and bestowed gifts on everyone. It was a very cool evening, and even cooler that Beth was the guest of honor.
For making this trip happen, we would like to say thanks to:
Catch-A-Dream Foundation(Chuck Riggnenbach and Brian Chisholm)
Nikki Moon with Bay Town Inn
200 North Beach Restaurant
Star Fish Café
The Blind Tiger Restaurant
One very cool girl, Beth

Landmine

Biloxi, MS USA

Went out Saturday morning. Found plenty of big
black drum. Caught and released 3 sea
monsters.  Caught 6 nice little puppy drum and a
sheepshead. Most of the fishing was done
around the train bridge pilings. Live shrimp on
bottom using a Carolina rig. Lots of fun; do the
world a favor and take a kid fishing!
