Why I don't wade fish....
 
A Baytown was man killed by flesh eating bacteria from a wade fishing trip. I know this is rare, but man what an awful way to go...

Some one from our area had it on his hands!!! It was from a saltwater marsh!!!! I think as long as you are in moving water you should be safe

That's some scary stuff....say he had hepitites tho,makes the bacteria spread faster

can just as easily happen from *****ing your finger on a shrimp in your livewell. That bacteria grows rapidly in warm salty water, so only real threat this time of year.

Engineer with Stone Energy lost 3 fingers and a thumb from this several years ago. Cast netting and got *****ed by a skrimps, this stuff goes from
0-60 in just hours. Best is you keep a bottle of bleach on the boat to disinfect any pokes or cuts.

my buddies caught their limit this past saturday around holly beach in the surf all on topwater. think i am gonna have to give it a try sat morning.

We lost a family member to this six years ago. He had a sore on his leg and went swimming off the beach in Florida. Three days later he died because it had spread to his organs.

Real Deal....Make sure you pay attention to symptoms once in contact with salt water..
