Everything along the coast has been shut down by Wildlife & Fisheries.

We are fishing on the inside marshes and cuts now. Reds &b specks mostly.

    cccooper...I feel for you and everyone else on the Gulf Coast. And the damn thing is headed toward us on the East Coast! Hopefully they can get it capped and stopped. Drilling on Anwar now looks a heck of a lot better than one mile down!

    Does that all apply to all fisheries in that area? Commercial and Sport?

    Is it wait and see?

    How far inland does this affect sport fisheries?

    A D D E N D U M :

    After inquiring about this, I started hearing reports of the oil now up on the beaches of: MS., AL., etc.!!!

    Anticipated, this development, but hope that at least, more time would pass. Very sorry for all of the countless people that have been and will be impacted by this Mega Disaster! Very saddened to hear this distressing news! ! !

    Unfortunately some comparisons of the "oil plumes" to deadly, menacing, ominous, black, storm clouds is very appropriate for sure.

    All that we see now, is just the superficial surface sheen on! This is terrifying, this oil spill business! [8] [V] [:(!]
