Pier, inshore and gulf fishing

Legs wide and pressed against the side of a 62-foot boat for balance, it took all my strength to reel in two 20- to 24-inch red snappers and two round triggerfish, which weighed between five and seven pounds, on a six-hour fishing trip in the Gulf of Mexico, 12 miles out with no land in sight.

Birds and bi-planes

Before dawn we left our hotel in Orange Beach and headed down the road to Fort Morgan, an old Civil War fort now in ruins. We pulled of the road and walked through the woods to a clearing where a bird-banding tent was set up. The place was buzzing with passionate birders.

Ruby red shrimp, hot pink sunsets, sugary white sand beaches, dolphins swimming alongside our boat, bird-banding and fishing in the Gulf of Mexico were highlights of my recent trip to Orange Beach and adjacent Gulf Shores, Ala.

Stay off the ice

Beware of thin ice. Roseville Police remind you to be cautious around lakes at all times. Please watch for postings because lakes may have thin ice areas, especially where springs or aeration systems keep the water moving.
