gone fishin'

Dave and I had a date to go fish at the Texas City Dike this week. It is situated near the ship channel, and we could see Galveston in the distance. The dike was ruined by Hurricane Ike 3 years ago, and all the shrimpers and stores are not allowed to rebuild. There is one bait shop that survived and they now have all the business (ala' Bubba Gump) The rebuilt dike is 5 miles long with water on both sides, it is really nice! We fished for several hours using mullet and shrimp and didn't catch a thing, in fact between us we only had one bite. It was great fun nonetheless.
