I got to the 'Drum Hole' towards the bottom of the tide and within 15 minutes I had my first Black Drum of the day. Then I caught my first ever Sheepshead that I released so I kept fishing with cut shrimp and caught two more Black Drum and two more Sheepshead before lunch which were released. My wife came down to eat lunch with me so I cleaned those three Black Drum and had fresh fish for lunch. Towards the top of the tide I caught a citation Pompano and 30 minutes latter I caught another nice sized Pompano. Once the tide started falling the bite picked up again. The guys towards the end were hammering the Sea Mullets but I said 'If it can get on a 5/0 hook I don't want to mess with it'. I released another small Sheepshead and caught four more nice sized Black Drum and a Grey Trout.
