I fished north today, the first time in a good while, meeting my guests Allen and Lavern Webb at the Atlantic Seafood dock. The tide had been going out for a few hours so we headed around to the outside of Tiger Island to make our first stop at a large marsh runout. We went with float rigs and some nice lively shrimp, but to no avail. Not even a bite!
We bounced around to the Jolley River and fished a bank of oysters that were beginning to show. The first few casts had our shrimp
We continued to fish the bank, got into some small but feisty
We ran up the river, fished snook creek, caught another couple of small Reds, then moved on around to the MOA. Switching to jigs, Allen got hot catching the small Redfish and just as we were about to leave, Lavern hooked up and expertly reeled in a fat keeper sized Seatrout. After one more stop back at Tiger Island, we called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
