Trout, Trout, and More Trout

We had a huge high tide this morning which made it difficult to launch and even get to the boat, but we made it! I had met Kern and Twila Davis along with their two daughters Hanna and Sidney, down at the Big Talbot Island Park boat ramp this morning and we headed north and west up the Amelia River to fish the Horsehead area with live shrimp under float rigs. From the start, all anglers were getting bites and hooking up with hungry Seatrout.   Young Sidney started it off with a nice Trout catch then Hanna followed that up with one of her own. It's a little unusual but we stayed in
that general area for an hour and a half but the fish were biting and these anglers were catching. They picked up a hard biting Blue fish now and then but most of the catches were Trout. We moved over into Jackstaff to get a different look and here the bite continued. I seemed like almost every marsh runout  - "dump" as my friend Tim Parker calls them- had Trout hanging around. I switched the two girls to jigs and shrimp and they picked up a Trout or two on those. We finished the day around at Twin Creeks then headed in, counting it as another great day to be fishing Amelia Island waters.
