Fish'n and a Tour
Yesterday morning I was able to get out on the water with Mike Polcari for a couple of hours of fishing. We made our first stop just on the outside of Tiger Island on the very first of an outgoing tide. Mike's first cast netted a nice Seatrout! He was tossing a live mud minnow under a float rig , got a bite here and there, and landed two more hungry Seatrout. We made a run up to fish the Jolley Bank, this time fishing minnows on a jig, and Mike picked up a couple of feisty Redfish. We then returned to the dock and picked up Mike's wife Susan and did a tour of the north end of Amelia Island. We cruised Old Town Fernandina, Burbank Net Shop, Fort Clinch, and Cumberland Island (and saw a few wild horses). We eased up into Beach Creek and were treated to a variety of bird sightings including Egret, Blue Heron and Rosette Spoonbills. After swinging by Tiger Island we called it a day, another great one to be out on Amelia Island waters!
