Beautiful Day to Fish

After a week of severe cold and strong winds, today turned out to be an outstanding day to be out on the water. I had met Jeff and Virginia Wood down at the Big Talbot Island Park boat ramp early and we headed up the Nassau River to fish Bubblegum Reef as the tide was coming in. Although we had no bites here it was a good warm up! Our next stop was down at Broward Island where we had just enough of a breeze to keep the gnats off. Both Jeff and Virginia were making excellent casts and after a while they had a good
flurry of fish catching. They started it off with a "double" hookup of feisty Redfish then they picked up a few more of them. Virginia had made a cast and was working the jig/shrimp back slowly to the boat and caught a nice hungry Seatrout. We fished the area thouroughly then hit Christopher Creek where Jeff found another Redfish. After fishing Seymore's Pointe and then the mouth of Jackstaff, we called it a day, another great one to be out fishing Amelia Island waters!
