In The Loop with Andy Andrews, hosted by David Loy
On this week’s episode, I talk about a very unusual summer event that occurs a few times a year on the shore of Mobile Bay.
Something very unique happened earlier this week while at a book signing in Fairhope, Alabama.
- There is a 15-mile stretch on the eastern shore of Mobile Bay.
- In the late summer on a still night between two and five in the morning, fish pile up on the shore for several hundred yards.
- I’m talking thousands. Flounder, Whiting, Mullet, Shrimp, and more.
- This is only one place in the world this happens and it is called a “Jubilee.”
I am shocked by how many people read The Noticer Returns and think “Jubilee” is something I made up.
- This has been going on for centuries.
- Years ago they had bells on the porches of the houses along the bay to let the community know when the phenomenon was occurring.
- The fish are almost stunned or asleep. It will last for an hour or two and then they’ll wake up and swim back into the gulf.
- People will fill their ice chests and have fish for a year.
It’s an odd thing in the world where someone’s influence or money can buy what whatever they want.
- You got enough money or influence and you could sit down with the president for dinner or have Kenny Chesney play a show in your backyard.
- There is not a single way you could ever reserve a time to go see a Jubilee.
- It is such a fascinating thing, but it kills me because I’ve never seen one.
If you haven’t read The Noticer Returns and want to hear an amazing story involving a jubilee and how it impacted the lives of several people, The Noticer Returns
