I will try to include things on this site that I find useful in operating my own
station as well as some good-to-know information. I have been associated with amateur
radio for around 60 years although first licensed in 1973. Earlier experience was
through my parents, W5DRI, mom, and W5DQK, dad. Follow the links below to find some
good ham radio STUFF!
At Last! Back on the water. I left Ocean Springs about 2 pm and headed to Horn Island.
The water was perfect and it was actually kind of cool and fall-like. Trolling Horn
was a bust, not a single strike. I moved to the north side and still not much but
trash fish and sharks. I was alone on the boat and did not want to clean a shark,
then clean the boat so they got thrown back in.
I gave up as it was getting late and the weather looked like it could change so I
ran to the bay and my old honey hole oyster bar. Things picked up immediately with
nice gafftops offering constant action until about 10:30. The hardheads moved in
and I turned in for the night. I went back to Horn in the morning but too rough to
fish so I cleaned the boat and headed home.
