    Yesterday I went to Jekyll Island to do some surf fishing. I caught a 36" blacktip shark that had two remoras attatched to it. I released the shark and took a pic of the remora. It had been a long tome since I caught a shark with a remora attatched to it.

    About an hour after dark at full high tide a female horseshoe crab came up and two males tried to spawn with her.

    Bonnethead shark is some of the best eating I have had. I caught one when we went deep sea fishing and I cant wait to go back. It was better than the Atlantic we caught. Three guys gave us there catches also, so we had a mess of fish to take back home and cook. Was a really good night.

    Thanks for sharing, I miss the Gulf(orginally from Biloxi) and all the fresh seafood. Wont find any up here worth your while, I tell ya.

    Keep them coming!

    Cool pictures! I've never seen a remora except on TV; really cool to see what they look like from that angle. I always thought they were just really good swimmers to stay "hugged up" to the sharks!:lol: And the photo of the crabs is great. Thanks for that!
