Shore fishermen, What about the Mosquito's?

I've been hearing for weeks how bad the salt marsh mosquito's are. Any shore fishermen know any secrets to keeping them at bay?

    Its true, when my wife is with me she gets bit 3 or 4 times for every one I get.

    Cover up and lots of bug spray

    I wear shoes, pants, long sleeves, gaitor, gloves, sunglasses and a hat. Cover up, works perfect. Hot fishing for sure, but better than getting 300+ mosquito bites and whatever disease they are carrying around.

    You understand if I don't show this one to my wife right?

    I'm positive I look utterly ridiculous, but not only does it keep bugs away, but I also don't have to deal with suntan lotion. I'm pretty much always covered when fishing. Some of the modern stuff is cooler than one would think, cooler as in not that hot.

    It's not just from the shore... it's been bad on the boat also. This past couple weeks is the worst I've seen it in years (due to all the rain I would guess).
    Tarpon... everything else is just bait.

    I was fishing a mangrove point at 2 in the afternoon last week with bright sun out and we were getting eaten alive. Never seen em so bad.
