Hi guys Iam sure you all already know but starting Friday night thru Sunday noaa is saying seas will be 2' or less offshore. I am wanting to make one last run before the cobia go home. Does anyone know the status of lunching at Bridgebait or somewhere close to the vacinity that I can use this weekend? I am sure with all the floating trash as long as Iam careful I can pick up some good fish!!!! Any help would be appreciated!

Last I heard, you would not be allowed to enter the Gulf of Mexico until further notice.

Bridge bait ramps are closed until further notice,

the ramp behind the Community house in freeport is fine. and open as far as i know.

i havent heard anything about not being allowed to enter the gulf , we have been fishing and no one has stopped us , two of my boats are out fishing today.

there has been some debris, but not too bad, i have seen it worse when the rivers flood. just be carefull

dont expect to find bait down here. bring it with you,, i do know that Capt. Marks Seafood was able to save there bait, and were supose to be moving it back to the store yesterday, hopefully they will be open foer business before the week end.

That was a few days after the storm. I did not say it was closed, just that you wouldn't be allowed to enter (pleasure crafts). There are a number of people missing and I think that was the concern. You may not have a problem now, since it has been 12 days. I have not heard anything else one way or another which is why I said "last I heard". By what Mike said, doesn't look like there is a problem now.

you are correct Danny'

went by bridge bait yesterday,and visited with the owners for a wile... the place is comming allong well, its getting complete face lift, and they had equiptment on the docks working on a new bulk head. i was impressed with what they have accomplished in such a short time. they are working hard to get the place ready for business.

i will take a few pictures this weekend, and keep everyone posted on the progress,

but as of right now the store , docks , and the ramps are closed.

Thanks! I go there just about every time I go to the surf. Do they sell ice? I have always bought that on the way at BucEES but would prefer to pay more at a small outfit of friendly folks like Bridge Bait.

I used to fish at the cell tower for the most part. Can I drive the mini van down there now?

I had been not going so far out of respect for folks' losses. It just didn't seem right to be enjoying myself in the surf while they work their butts off in a funk.

That said, it is good to do business there to get money flowing in the city again.

Yes, they sell ice. You can't enter the area unless you live there. We talked with Jack and Valerie today and they plan to be open by next weekend, if possible.
