Finally after 3 months of not having a boat due to a repower I was able to get out. 
Beautiful day, perfect weather, perfect wind but no fish. 
Water was a tad stained but not bad. We used loud baits most of the day but the only strike came on a spoon. Don't know if Ian has anything to do with the crappy fishing or the full moon but I'll try again next week. Anyone one else having luck in shore since Ian's passing.
It was so nice just to be out there again. Haven't fished since the beginning of July.

    Great you got back on the water. Between Ivan and the full moon and water clarity it was a little slow. I heard some found some schooling reds and got plenty on bait .
