Follow The Rainbow
We eased up the river to a marsh runout and fished it thoroughly. In addition to a good handful of feisty Redfish, Carter hooked up with something big while fishing out deeper. He played it patiently and
perfectly, from bow and back to stern, then landed a big 18" Seatrout, boy what a fish!
There was some big rain clouds here and there and off to the south we saw a nice rainbow and coincidently, that was where we heading next! We made the run down to Pumpkin Hill, set up along the now flooded grass line, and began tossing float rigs. The catching was fast and furious! David put a nice 17" Trout in the boat, added another keeper sized fish, then Carter landed a keeper sized Sandtrout. We fished until we ran out of bait, then headed in, counting it as another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida
