National Hunting and Day Go Fishing CAUGHT A LONG WAY FROM HOME -- This blue crab shown above was caught miles and miles from its natural salt water habitat. Fishermen Jimmy Whitehead and Russ Ford of Woodville caught this crab in the Mississippi River Tuesday, September 10. This is the second crab they caught that week, the first was accidently thrown out of the boat when they were discarding unwanted fish. The crabs were caught at Fort Adams -- one on the Louisiana side and one on the Mississippi side of the river. They have caught salt water species of fish in the past years of fishing -- and even landed a rainbow trout -- but never a crab. Just never know what you may find in the river at these low river stages. It is thought that salt water intrudes upriver when the river stage becomes low like it is now. -- Submitted Photo One of the best ways to celebrate this day is to go fishing. After the heat of the summer, fishing in Missis- sippi has begun to improve, as water temperatures con- tinue to decrease. Pickwick Lake, the Mississippi River oxbows and the Pascagoula River are all popular fish- ing destinations during the fall. If you are looking for easy access and a quieter atmosphere, Mississippi's state lakes also provide great fishing opportunities. State lakes across the state, from Tippah Lake to Lake Perry, all provide great fall fishing for crappie, bream and catfish, with abundant shoreline access. Many fish attractors have been in- stalled in these lakes over the past few years. Location information is available at http://www.mdwfp, comJ fishing-boating/lake-depth- maps.
