Capt. Sonny Schindler from Shore Thing Fishing Charters (228-342-2206, www.shorethingcharters.com) in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, posted a fine inshore gallery from recent winter trips. Looks like despite cold temperatures and steady brisk winds, Schindler and his guests and friends have been waylaying the drum (black and red) and sheepshead, not to mention the croaker.
