Trout'n After Thanksgiving

It was such a pretty day the day after Thanksgiving so  my wife and I and our good friend Ameera launched the boat at Atlantic Seafood shortly after noon and headed up to the Tiger Island area to do some fishing with the tide coming in.  We hadn't been stopped long when we all started getting bites.  The Trout were real hungry for our live shrimp floated near some submerged oyster beds.  We caught about 8 or 10 in less than an hour and three of them were of keeper size.  We made a short detour by Cumberland Island to check out some wild horses, then headed up to the Jolley River where I thought we'd have  a shot at some larger Trout and maybe a Redfish.  But they weren't biting.  We made one last stop south of the Rayonier mill and even though  we had to work for them, both Ameera and I landed 3-4 more Trout apiece and one keeper sized Puppy Drum.  Ameera was making excellent casts and patiently worked her fish in to the waiting net.  With the sun going down, we headed in, counting it as another great day to be out on Amelia Island waters!
