PINS was in rare form today for the spring time. Very little weed on the beach or in the water this time of year is rare to say the least. Light winds, clear water and bait the length of the beach is providing for excellent fishing! There are large mats of oil washing in over the first couple of miles in the park. GLO was out this evening cleaning up the mess.
