shell mound 9/11 report

Solunar tables said today wouldn't be a good day for fishing.... but a bad day fishing beats a good day at work.....

So hit Shell Mound pier today and got mostly "eating size" (should one be so inclined... I'm not.

Plenty of bait and lots of activity (bait being smashed/spooked) throughout the incoming tide.  Did see two redfish pulled in (one barely legal, the other barely not legal), and a small (large bluegill size) sheepshead
