There is nothing better than being able to get out of a huge jam when your car is broken down and you need a ride. You’re thinking, “Thank goodness,” when the trusty local tow truck driver comes down the road. Sam, my friend and long-time Auto Mechanic, is a great service-oriented person. He’s definitely old school, and like his dad, loves to work on old cars. He’s fixed my minivan several times when even the dealership couldn’t get it right. Plus, he’s about half the price. He’s located within the community of Bay St. Louis, Mississippi on the Gulf Coast, about a mile from Hwy 90. He’s so close to my house, I can literally walk home while he works on my car if need be. His nicely-located garage is right in the middle of a neighborhood and close to a main road. His large two-door garage is adjacent to his home and makes for a very fun place, representing the old school art form of the car mechanic. You can find their location right on the Bay St Louis/ Waveland line where old meets new and, whether you need a tow, an oil change, or even transmission work, Sam is your guy!

Wade Fishing on the Gulf Coast

Wade fishing near old pier pilings near Waveland on the Mississippi Gulf Coast

Wade fishing is one of the more popular types of fishing on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. From Waveland to Ocean Springs, avid fishermen wade into the water to catch flounders, speckled sea trout and red fish. There are several really popular wade fishing along the beaches in Pass Christian, Long Beach, Gulfport and Biloxi as well. Depending on the time of year many wear waders when entering the Gulf to go wade fishing. Water temperature and jelly fish can be two reasons that waders may be a good idea.

Here are a few pointers for going wade fishing along the coast:

  • Learn to Swim if you Don’t Know How!
  • Wear a life jacket or emergency flotation device
  • Get a small tackle box to attach to float ring or vest
  • Get a good pair of water shoes
  •  Shuffle your feet when walking out in the water (Will most likely scare stingrays away)
  • Bring float ring to store bait and your fish
  • Going wade fishing with a partner is always best
  • Let someone know where you will be and when you should be expected to return

Going wade fishing can be a lot of fun when done safely and productively. I have waded into the water with only a fishing pole and have waded back out with a stringer of really nice fish in Waveland. My only personal fishing tip is to get live bait or Tsunami artificial lures. The artificial works best under a cork on a slow retrieve.

If you prefer not to get directly in the water, check out our Mississippi Kayak Fishing Guide for the Coast. Kayak fishing is just like wade fishing without needing to get wet. Some days it nice to just have the ease of walking out into the water. Happy fishing along the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
