Hot Day of Fishing

It was a hot one today, more so than recent days in that the breeze laid down to nothing as we fished. Greyfield Inn dock on Cumberland Island - and we scooted back to Florida to do some backwater fishing. But these anglers were game and we worked through it to catch some fish! I had picked up Walter Jameson and his friend Jason who had along with him his son Daniel - up at the

We ran up the Jolley River and pulled up at our first stop at the mouth of Snook Creek and began tossing float rigs with mud
minnows to the marsh grass on a high and falling tide. The anglers were making excellent casts and had a good handful of bites before Walter put a couple of hard fighting Jack Crevalle in the boat. 

We dropped back to the mouth of the Jolley, eased along an oyster bank, but had only a few bites. Walter did put a keeper sized Flounder in the boat (all fish were released today).  After hitting a nice marsh run out on the outside of Tiger with jigs and minnows, we moved around to the mouth of Tiger and here things picked up a bit. Jason hooked up with a couple of feisty Redfish then he put another, larger, Flounder in the boat.

Daniel had been working diligently on his cast and was making some real good ones and it paid off. He too put a feisty Redfish in the boat.  Walter wrapped that spot up when he caught a keeper sized Seatrout on a free lined mud minnow - just a hook. Our last stop was around behind Tiger, fishing the logs with very few bites, but we did pull one more Jack out of the water and with that, we called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
