Nobody on the pier and no fish in the river!

10/20/10 Went @ 3PM to the pier, no one there, all to myself.  Fished on an incoming tide, several bites, but no fish. Fished for about an hour. So if there is no fish info, I can fill you in on some local history. This spot on this river is where Union steam warships sunk the CSS Nashville in 1862, the Nashville had run the Union blockade. The CSS Nashville was originally a cargo ship, but upon being trapped within the blockade, was refitted as a side wheeler, iron clad warship. Today if you go to Ft. McAllister state park, they have on display the running gear of the CSS Nashville.

By the way I did catch something!
