BUT, can't hurt to try if you have time, and are right there.

I have had this issue in the past, you have to edit your pictures, make them smaller then save, then try to repost.

As Bay mentioned, there are resizer apps on phones if your standard editor won?t shrink the photo.

I did a little saltwater fishing today which down in Florida they call a pass, to us it is a Inlet. we did a little rock opping and i landed about a dozen sheepshead, 8 of which made it to the table for dinnwr.
on a side note my buddy called me today said he had fished in the rain today down in Leonardo in the area of the fishing pier and managed a short and a 29 inch bass. He is a bait flipper.

Dave, nice report!


That may be the second reported keeper in the state so far, at least it's only the second one I heard of (and I still wonder whether the one reported in Absecon Bay's shop might have been a "nuclear" fish to win the first fish prize, even though the gent said it was caught up the Mullica... just saying given the lack of *any* keeper reports subsequent to that one. But I'm a curmudgeon after all....)

I think it's all going to bust open any minute now. The sun has enough intensity to really get things warmed up and with the length of the day extended by an hour it'll just be getting better!

No need for live bait, I have bloodworm and sand worm teasers for my casting egg.

Rob, it was an attempt at humor. Feeble, I guess.
I was looking at the "Note: hours shift because clocks change forward 1 hour."

out for bass at first light; lots of hits on a popper; landed 5, 3 in the 2-2 1/2lb range and two small ones; one big hit took me in the weeds and tangled; did the old tog in the rocks move and opened bail and slack line; 2 min and he swam free and I got him in; a 30in Gar...on a popper
