Green cove shrimp and fish

I tried to post this last night so if it shows up twice I apologize.  I've been on the river four times this past week or so around the Shands bridge.  Shrimp have been a mixed bag but plenty for bait on the west side north of the bridge near the old pier.  After getting plenty of shrimp each day, we fished shell beds north and south of the bridge but the best croaker have been on the bed straight off the end of the old pier just on the east side of the channel.  I was limiting myself to 10 to 12 croaker each trip...mostly because I didn't want to clean 50 and the average size was pretty solid  yesterday my dad got the jumbo prize with a 17 inches. We also caught 3 yellowmouth trout yesterday. We got our fish on the incoming tide every trip. Hope the shrimp stick around. There's still a real mix of size. Not many eaters yet but nice for bait and a lot of tiny ones still in the mix.

Dad's jumbo croakie...
