The specks were biting today at the Washington Street Pier in Bay St. Louis. The fishing was on fire. They were catching fish on almost every cast. The Washington Street Boat ramp/ Fishing Pier is only a few miles west of Old Town Bay St. Louis. Nothing fancy was required to catch fish today, only a pole and a bucket to sit on.
It was nice seeing the fish hitting on top of the water. If you watch closely in the video, you can see the speck hitting the bait. If you need something to do, try taking a few hours and casting into the Gulf of Mexico to catch a Speckled Trout, Flounder or Red Fish. Fishing might even be a nice way to spend a lunch hour in Bay St. Louis.

Bay Saint Louis is in the process of adding new street lights down Main Street. These street lights are in the classic Bay St. Louis fashion shown above. The new lights will complete the Old Town Bay St. Louis area with the street lights. The lights are almost the calling card for the entire area.
