Flood Tide Fishing In The Wind

After taking off for Thanksgiving day it was good to be back on the water today, although it was somewhat windy, a week long condition.  I had met Brian and Amy Easley down at the City marina and we ran up Bell River to fish some flooded oyster beds with float rigs and live shrimp. Brian picked up a lone Seatrout then there wasn't much biting after that. We peeked at some flooded grass flats but there was nothing stirring so we ran around to fish a grass patch in Lanceford Creek. The tide was really up and with the wind blowing there wasn't a whole lot biting but these two anglers
were out to enjoy the being on the water. We ran over to Eagans Creek which got us out of the wind and made for some very pleasant fishing. Brian added a Seatrout then Amy got on the board with not one, but two Seatrout of her own. Although it wasn't a big morning of catching it was still a great day to be fishing Amelia Island waters.
