Went to Biloxi Marsh via Hopedale/BSM this morning with brother again. Water was excruciatingly low, to the point they only let you use the first backdown, as you'd likely back off the end of the second before your boat was afloat. Tide was literally like .13' range, which is about 2" lol. Anyway, the wind was cold and honking out of the N, but finally switched around to NE, and ANY easterly component will help the tide come up on that side of the MRGO. It came up (VERY SLOWLY) all day, and probably wound up rising 8", judging from the exposed point we were using as our tide guage. The fishing was very slow, but we did manage to boat a two man limit of reds, and released two perfect tourny fish and 3 or 4 others over 24" (we don't keep those), and 3 undersized reds.
Chicken salad out of chicken shite.
