    Well so far it's been a fail there's so little sargassum and was only able to catch a lot of ghost shrimp and what I believe to be a baby spider crab. This was at the jetty infront of rainforest cafe. I am going to go back in a little and stay there until like 8 or 9 pm

    After all I caught one baby spider crab in the sargassum and in the jetties I caught one cling fish, a whole load of Blennys, a lot of ghost shrimp, some of these small clear fish, and these two crabs that I don't know what kind they are. So what do y'all think are the best jetties or spots to catching seargent majors, Atlantic spadefish, small puffers, seahorses, and all cool stuff like that? I just need some advice cause I've really had no luck thx!

    At the dike I caught two porcelain crabs, so many ghost shrimp, minnows, two types of crabs which species I don't know and I caught a lot of those, two big fat blennies, 3 baby croakers,and a cling fish. I was hoping to find a pipefish but had no luck

    That's awesome!! Any pictures?

    Next time you want to go... hit me up a week or so before if you want some company.

    What kind of tank is this stuff going in? A lot of the stuff down here is not reef safe

    You will find pipefish right next to the grass on the shoreline.
    Just try not to drag through the cordgrass please.

    Try the jetties on seawall at night. They are all the same and produce the same stuff. Spadefish will hang out on the outside of the jetty. puffers are few and far between and I am still trying to figure out where and when to get them. The damsels are on the inside of the rocks usually in a calmer sheltered area you will usually just see them and scoop them up. Hope this helps!! have fun and happy collecting!!

    Thx! Yea I've been trying to catch all of those cool things that people talk about but like I said no luck. It would be nice to meet some of y'all and collect together.I have several tanks, one for the fish and other livestock I buy, a Galveston tank, a seahorse and pipefish tank(don't have any that's why I'm trying to catch them),and many other tanks.Oh and what grass by the shoreline are you talking about for the pipefish?Any other advice on how to catch spadefish,puffers,and damsels like using a cast net or a siene net? Cause I have those... thx
