Lot's of Fish

Folks ask me if the we're catching fish and I can honestly say, "yes, they're small". Today was the more of the same when I met Greg Adams, his son Chris and their friend Kent up at the Eagans Creek boat ramp. We headed over to Tiger Island, specifically "manatee cove", and set up fishing with float rigs and mud minnows on the first of an outgoing tide. It wasn't long before all three anglers were putting Seatrout in the boat. One after the other. Trout, Trout, Trout.

We were fishing out one size of the boat and watching manatee
lolling and rolling around behind us. The entire time we fished we had manatee coming up and blowing and rolling. How cool! But we had no keeper sized Trout so we ran up to the Jolley River, all the way to Snook Creek and began to fish some oysters that were beginning to show. We picked up a couple of small Redfish then, shortly after Greg switched to a jig, he hooked up and landed a nice keeper sized Flounder.

We ran further up the river and set up outside a large marsh outflow and really got into the small, but feisty Redfish. One after the other. Then Kent landed another keeper sized Flounder and Chris wrapped things up with a surprise, keeper sized Trout. We caught a bunch of fish and even though they weren't real big, we counted it as another great day to be fishing out on the Amelia Island waters.
