Big Trout Makes The Morning

I fished this morning with Rodney and Jodie Harris and their daughter Natalie, leaving out of the Fernandina Beach Harbor Marina at 7am and heading north to fish Tiger Island.  We weren't getting a whole lot of action until Jodie had a good strong hookup and landed a very nice 17" Seatrout.  We continued to fish the area, had another hookup, and Natalie reeled in a keeper sized Flounder and then Rodney put a hard fighting Stingray in the boat.  Our next stop was up at Jolley River, fishing an incoming tide with the
oysters already covered.  We had great weather and a good tide but didn't get many real bites until Natalie's float disappeared and she had a hookup, FISH ON!  We saw a big tail thrash and boy what a fish!  Natalie kept the pressure on and after a good battle, landed a big 21 3/4" Seatrout!  We fished that spot thoroughly and Rodney landed a good handful of hungry Seatrout.  We fished further up the Jolley, hit the outside of Tiger Island, then headed in, counting it as another great day to be fishing Amelia Island waters!
