    the last time I caught pipefish was in the public boat ramp in freeport when the sargasm came in. There were pads floating right in front of the table people dress out there fish at. I would pull up a few every time I threw there. I have also pulled in a couple squid. My family was dying to keep it, but I am not equipped to take care of them. My favorite collecting is to get in waste deep water and scoup up pads of sargasm in a net, or throw a cast net over it. you never know what you will pull in. there are tons of those little red sargasm shrimps. There has not been much for sea weed the last couple years tho.
    Chris85 is a great guy. He showed me the rock nems. I fear the recent shoreline sand project probably killed off a lot of them.

    Bet hurricane Ike didn't help either. We used to fish around Anahuac for many years before and after Ike and since the bay took a direct hit, it really messed things up. Used to be tons of grass where the Trinity dumps into the bay and the water was nice and clear. You would see trout, black drum, sheepshead, and reds next to freshwater bass, catfish, carp, buffalo, and gator gar. Now there is no grass and looks like a mud pit. Yeah the fish are probably still there but it looks terrible. I am certain it will get back to what is once was eventually but I believe so much grass was blown out it will take a while.

    I thinking about going down there and sorting through some seaweed soon. I'm also hoping to go in a month or so for more peppermint shrimp. I think that the anemones have been eating them after dark.

    A lot of nems got burried under sand when they built the beach back up. The sea weed has been hardly existent for a few years now.

    Okay, I definitely haven't ever seen that much. There was some last year though. Oh by the way the eyelash blennies are a pair lol. Next batch of eggs I'm going to try to raise.

    I may very well join you. I'm not sure what tomorrow holds, so if I can head that way I'll let you know tomorrow
