On the Mississippi Coast

Capt. Rimmer Covington www.tmgfc.com fishes out of Pass Christian, Miss. At first light Tuesday Capt. Covington, crew and fishermen (my friend Henry Webb, his pal Jerry Day and I) plan to motor about 70 miles into the Gulf looking for Yellowfin tuna, Wahoo and, maybe – hopefully – a mako shark.

The weather has been fractious but the fishing, according to the Capt. Covington, has been good.

“We’ve seen some yellowfins of 150 pounds plus,” he said. “This is actually one of the best times of the year for Yellowfin Tuna. We’ve been catching some wahoo, too. And I’d like to get a big mako.”

Me too.

Thanks for visiting the blog. Check back Tuesday for a fish story.
