Nassau Sound (George Crady Bridge) 10-08-2017 report

I was debating about going fishing today. Check the tide and saw the high coefficient of 96. First thing that come to mind was the current is ripping and the wind is gonna be howling. SSE 15-20. The weather call for a 70 chance of rain and I check and see the rain might show up in the afternoon. High tide at 11:00am so my best bet is to fish those remaining two hours of the incoming. The current should slow down a tad to allow my bait to settle. Grab three rod and one pound of shrimp and some frozen mullet. I want to keep it simple and easy today. Two rods near the piling (fishing against the current) and the third with shrimp and cut mullet together. I put a bell on the tip of my rod to alert me. It was around 9:40 when I setup for fishing. Ten minutes later the rod with the shrimp and mullet got a hit. It was a slot red at 24''. After re baiting the shrimp rod got a hit. It was a perfect size black drum. The tide was almost at max high and I decided to start reeling up my rod when another rod at the piling got hit. It was another black drum and that was a sign to go. Not bad for fishing a couple of hours. Got home just in time to watch the football game:).
