shell mound 8/20

Not as much bait activity at the surface.  Got to see a porpoise do some aggressive rounding up and bashing of lunch across the water next to Hog Island.

FIsh wise, finger mullet and mud minnows were easy w/ my new net (1/4" mesh), some sand perch and a few short (like 8") trout were caught, some big drum were seen tailing, and we caught some larger catfish.  Saw others catching similar all day, and one guy did get a nice 26" black tip shark.

In all I'm happy - my gear all worked, my rod got bent and I got to spend time w/ my oldest.
