I hope the people [fishermen / castnetters] keep it clean.

It opened last summer (?) and was closed back down because the people left such a big mess on the piers.

Great report. Were you fishing from the docks or from a boat?

Sad hog Island Closed

I was there today, and the game wardens came and ran everybody off!

Said it was closed from October to March. Just wanted to let everyone know. Damn shame too--been catching some fish there.

I got this from the wildife and fisheries website on sabine refuge:


[SIZE=2]Over 150 miles of refuge canals, bayous and waterways are open for recreational boating, fishing and crabbing from March 15-October 15. Boat launches are available at Hog Island Gulley and West Cove Recreation Areas along Highway 27. Both fresh and saltwater fish species may be caught on the refuge. Quality of fishing and species available vary seasonally. Recreation Areas along Highway 27 are open for fishing and crabbing year round. Castnetting for shrimp is seasonally available. Permits and special regulations apply; please contact refuge visitor center for specific information[/SIZE]
