Fished elmers island this morning caught 6 specks and 5 white trout all on live shrimp the bite died down fast. Waded a couple hundred yards out on the eastern side of the island with two buddies trying to pick up some more specks around 10:30, I tied the bait bucket to my shorts with a string and after both of my friends lost they're shrimp I was trying to grab a couple out of the bucket for them and when I glanced up there was about a 3 and a half foot shark about 2 feet away coming directly towards me at a fast pace, I had just enough time to yell at my buddy's and jab the shark with the bottom of my pole! The shark veered off as soon as I hit it but needless to say it scared the hell out of me! So we ran back to shore and moved down the coast a couple hundred yards and were fishing on another sandbar in about 6 inches of water when another shark being about 4 to 5 feet long was heading towards one of my buddy's when he spotted it about 20 yards away from himself so he hollered and we all hauled ass back to shore once again! I've never even seen any sharks in the water before at elmers island other than the ones being caught by other fisherman, it was an eventful day to say the least. Yall be safe out there!
