Does anyone know if the old Pips Place boat launch is open to the public & how much does it cost to launch.

The way I catch shrimp.When the water comes up about a couple feet or more to cover the grass on the river batcher.I throw out a couple cans of dog food with holes punched in the cans.Let them set for at least 15 minutes.Then start throwing the cast net.Works pretty much anywhere along the river where there is grass under the water.

A comment titled: Marsh Itch in response to a report titled: infection from State Park

If you came in contact with 3 corner marsh grass,in fresh or salt water.You got the itch.No fast cure.You got to wear it off & stay away from marsh grass until after the first freeze.The freeze kills the bacteria in the grass untill spring.I started getting the itch while duck hunting about 15 years ago & tried all kind of prescription medicine with no cure.When it itches,dont scratch.Run warm water on it.The hotter the better & eventually it will go away.If this is the first time you got it. It may take months to go away.Every time you get it you become a little more emune to it,if you dont go CRAZY first.The only way i found to not get it,if you cant stay out of the marsh grass is too.As soon as you can wash the area contacted by the grass with a good strong bleach (CLOROX)for about 30seconds.THAN RINCE GOOD WITH WATER.If you wait more than a couple of hours to use the bleach,its to late.The bottom line is all the cotaimination in the water these days is absorbed by the marsh grass & most people are alergic to it.
