I set my alarm this am for 4:00 to go to the octagon pier. I figured conditions suck but at least I would have the whole pier to myself. I started with the norm, catch some live bait, got some great size ly's put 1 out freeline. one on bottom and then set out rod 3 on bottom with a giant chunk of mullet.

First pole screamed out with a big sting ray. Then 2nd pole took off to end up being a decent speck. About an hour went by before another run that seemed promising.

It was a spanish, as I was pulling him in the rod bent with great force as I saw a giant red eat him.It was on... I was in luck because this was my best and biggest rod. I fought him for about 10 minutes and as I got him within sight a 5 to 6 foot shark came up and ate him and took off. As I was screaming with no one around my wife shook me and said " what is wrong with you?" Yeah she woke me up!! It was 4 am.

I stayed home. I figured there was no way I could top that trip. LOL
