A friend from work and I went fishing this evening near the Gulfport Marina. It was a great evening, quite relaxing. There is an inlet for the marina from the bay, and you can fish from the shore all along the inlet. One thing I like about the bay is that there is lots of wildlife around, especially birds.
Isn’t google wonderful? I didn’t know before I uploaded it what kind of bird this was.
When we first got there, we tried going on the Clam Bayou side of the inlet, but WOW, the no-see-ums were biting like crazy. I borrowed some bug spray from another fisherman there, but it wasn’t enough. We left pronto.
While there, I watched yet another beautiful sunset over Boca Ciaga Bay.
On the way to go fishing I stopped at Walmart and got a few things. A bait bucket, an ice chest, beer for the ice chest and a CAST NET! I’ve been wanting one of these for a while. Can’t wait to use it. Expect a post about that soon!
All I had for bait was some frozen fish pieces I kept from the last fishing adventure to Fort Desoto. I’ve heard the fish are going for greenbacks now (Whatever they are) and live shrimp. Not having either of those, I went with the frozen fish. And I caught 3 fish. I’m wondering if they were all the same catfish that kept coming back.
I don’t know if you can eat salt-water catfish, but I tossed all these back.
On a side note, the guy with me didn’t catch a thing – not that I’m competitive at all.
