Dirty Business

Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas



The OFM got busy fishing early this morning and the result was a worthless fish known as a skipjack. It was about twenty inches long.

 

They are fun to catch since they are very active fighters. However they are not a fish for eating. We have it on poor authority that they make great cut bait for some good eating fishes. We have never found out in person.

Upon return to the campground we were caught in the renovations that were going on. Several campsites were getting improvements on the parking pads. This maintenance will be a welcome change. Here is some of the rock being unloaded.

 

The tractor operator got busy and in a little while we had several pads that looked like this.

 

Now all they need is a good rain to compact the dirt and rock so the heavy trailers will not rut the pad very badly. Badly rutted pads can be a nightmare for leveling your rig. And we do not need nightmares when we are trying to have tooooo much fun.

  1. Know what you mean about badly rutted sites. They are definitely not a good way for having tooooo much fun.

  2. OFM, have you ever thought of using that "not so good for eating fish" for crabing. You don't need a net just a sturdy string. We use chicken necks here but I am sure that fish would work. A couple of blue crabs would be mighty tasty. Just a idea of another way to try and have toooo much fun.

    1. They work fairly well for crabbing. Crabbing is a very sparse adventure in this area. The crab population in the Rockport area is extremely limited.

    2. Probably good bait for catfish - yum yum!
