Lowcountry fisherman headed to help those in Texas

After seeing images from what is happening in Texas as a result of Hurricane Harvey, a Lowcountry man took off early Monday morning to try and help.

“We’ve got to get down there and help people that literally can’t help themselves right now,” said Mount Pleasant fisherman Jamie Hough.

He hauled a boat and a truckload of supplies on the journey.

“People that are caught in this situation tend to change your outlook on life. There'll be a lot of people that are rescued. In my eyes, if I can get down there and save one person, it’s worth the whole trip," he said.

Hough asked for financial help to buy food for those in need and supplies to help.

You can give in three ways:

1) Venmo App; search “@redfishmafia”

2) Paypal:

3) Order directly on Amazon and ship to Fishers of Men, 3600 North Main, Vidor Texas

Hough said living in the Lowcountry gives new perspective.

“We’re going to need their help. That’s the bottom line. We’ve got to be our brother's keeper,” he said. “We’ve got to look out for each other. If we’re not there to go and help them and nobody else will do it, who’s going to be there to help us when the same thing happens?”
