Fishing in Port Aransas, Texas, was quite a bit of fun and I caught some big salt water catfish which I promptly threw back. At one point this huge ship was making it’s way into the Gulf and was much more impressive than the bony catfish. A quick google search:

  1. That is a big ship – to state the obvious. 🙂 Difficult to imagine something this size being tossed around like a toy in rough seas but it would be of course. It looks very vulnerable to being snapped in the middle, given its length. The creaking and the groaning as all that steel is stressed in a storm must be quite unsettling. 😐

  2. Hi Mike,
    As I’m not into fishing, that’s what I like to do (in the jetty) in Port A and also from the city park: watch the big ships come in and go out.
    Best regards from southern Texas,
    Pit
