Catching Fish Despite The Wind
We've had an entire week of windy conditions and there is no end in sight! Today was my second trip in the wind and my two anglers, Harry Purnell and his friend Larry Levy were game to go fishing. So we met down at the Big Talbot Island Park boat ramp and ran up the Nassau River to fish Broward Island with jigs and mud minnows on a low and outgoing tide. It didn't take long to get bites (I had one on the demo cast, but missed 'em!) and soon they were catching fish. Harry picked up a couple of feisty Redfish and Larry added a hungry Seatrout. We worked the bank and found a few more Redfish, one which was of keeper sized, and also a keeper sized Flounder, to round out an Amelia Island Back Country Slam at the first stop! After fishing the island thoroughly, we ran back through the chop to fish some docks at Seymore's Pointe. Our first stop produced no real bites so we made a run back to the Nassauville area, sticking with the jigs, and found a handful of keeper sized Mangrove Snapper and another Seatrout. Our last stop, back at Seymore's Pointe (and out of the wind) produced no bites so we called it a day, another great one to be fishing Amelia Island waters.
