November camping, fishing, sharking.

November turned out to be a quite stormy month for the first half, with conditions improving around Thanksgiving and into that weekend.  The bull redfish run was phenomenal, with the big bulls prowling the surf for miles and miles at many times.  Baits varied from day to day, and while some struck out, those with the right tactics caught excellent catches of fish.
