Bait Busters

We had a beautiful morning today - sunshine and just a slight breeze.  I fished with Abby and Daniel Vines along with Steve and Susie Komisar.  We met at the Atlantic Seafood dock early - 6:30am, and headed up to the Jolley River to fish a tide that had been coming in for about 2 and half hours.  We eased along the bank tossing finger mullet on jigs up to the still exposed oysters and the anglers were getting bites.  They caught plenty of hungry Trout and feisty Redfish along with a couple of Snapper and Croakers.  Unfortunately, the "baitstealers" were hungry too and in less than an hour and a half we had worke through all of our bait1  We picked up and made a run to the Bait House and got 5 dozen live shrimp, then headed over to the outside of Tiger Island to toss the shrimp under floats to the flooded oyster beds.  It wasn't long before the anglers again were catching fish - Trout, Reds, Ladyfish and a couple of small Black Tip sharks! We made a stop in Lanceford Creek and a stop justs south of Rayonier, then headed in, counting it as another great day to be out on Amelia Island waters!
