With the tip of the hat to our tipster I’d like to share with everyone the boat DMR Executive Director Jamie Miller authorized for use in the snapper sampling program per Slabbed New Media’s source, who is been granted anonymity as they are not authorized to publicly discuss such matters. The next step was to issue the call for pictures:
Attention Mississippi DMR employees and stakeholders: Slabbed needs a picture and unless you’re under a rock you know what we want. TY.

It is the boat true, die-hard fishermen dream of. The boat that has but one reason to exist: to help you catch the kind of fish that win tournaments – plain and simple.
And with a bigger tip of the hat to a photographer who answered the call and was able to sneak a pic:
At a time when MDH has had to shutter numerous County Health Clinics such as the one in Biloxi and MDMH having to close its only substance abuse treatment center in the state due to budget cuts, the contrast with DMR having enough money to burn on a top-end boat to ply the near shore state waters sampling Red Snapper is stark.
