Catagory 3 Hurricane = Fishing Bonanza

There's an upside to a hurricane -- fishing.

As Gustav battered the Gulf Coast yesterday, hardy anglers in Gulf Shores, Alabama, were thinking redfish.

There's a fable that you can catch all you want during a hurricane.

As the worst of the storm passed, the fishermen grabbed their gear, filled their coolers with beer and headed to a salty lagoon.

Johnny Howard caught his limit of three in less than 30 minutes.

He says the redfish were in a feeding frenzy thanks to Gustav.
