well i always like to look at everyones avatars--some are real cool--but i got to thinkin about mine--and when the picture was taken---it was one the first trips to the coast--it was the first large fish i had caught out of my new boat ---i was so proud of my new boat--i was so proud to be able to share this picture over 3400 times---it was a beatiful day off the galveston north jetty at the end---and i was in the process of getting back into salt water fishing after many years away from the texas coast--and i was with a friend who was also getting back into it---its fun to reminiss---and to plan future trips in ur head even if the never come to pass when u want them to---so for those who can not go out for what ever reason---fish in ur head--its fun--and people will wounder why u are smiling:fireworks

Blockade Runners

Cool post.

My avatar was constructed by our very own Grayfish. I wanted a badge to put on our camp that reflected the history of Titlum-Tatlum Bayou as a blockade runner's port of refuge during the War Between the States. We flew the Confederate national flag at the camp as an omage to the brave mariners who waited behind the cover of the salt cedars. They waited for moonless nights so they could slip past the Yankee gunboats stationed at San Luis Pass. They would deliver cotton to Cuba and other ports of call and bring back the necessities the Confederacy needed so badly. They were the life-blood of a young and doomed nation. I thought it important to salute them in such a historic place.

Grayfish made a badge and I thought it would make a great avatar too, with the only exception that I wanted it singular for personal use. Hence, "Blockade Runner".

Attached is a pic of the historical marker found at the SLP county park.

In times like these we could use some "happy thoughts"!

My avatar story... I had an invite to fish a Kingfish Tournament out of Sargent, and I ended up catching the 1st place Dolphin. We were fishing out of the smallest boat in the tournament, an 18' Wahoo center console. We were trying to catch chicken dolphin for bait on a weed line about 15 miles out. I was using a 6500C on an All Star PRH and 15 lb line, the terminal end was a quarter oz. jighead tied straight to the main line. The fight was on! The fish weighed 24.2 pounds. Still brings a smile to my face when I see that picture!

At work me and a guy I work with are always talking about fishing, no matter if its a good day or bad. Sometimes people think we are wierd for it but they just dont know how fisherman enjoy a day out on the water even if we dont catch anything.
