[quote]MS regulations are hard as heck to read.[/quote] Agreed. I couldn't even find a list of saltwater "gamefish" to share. Regardless, you can bow fish for reds in MS. We just don't have the extensive marsh habitat that's conducive for it. I don't care one way or the other about bow fishin...

re: Galveston sand vs Biloxi sand

Posted by speckledawg on 2/26/24 at 9:23 pm
A lot of people are confusing sand quality (OP's statement) with water quality here. Most cities along the MS coast keep up the beaches very well and have large crews to do just that. The water quality varies hugely with rainfall. It also varies a lot based on proximity to the bays (BSL & Bioxi)....
Costa Rica is awesome, but it's the most expensive in Central America. Great for so much other stuff, aside from the fishing, too though. ...
