Two Guys Fishing
I fished this morning with Tandy Morton and his buddy Tommy after we had met at the Atlantic Seafood dock and headed up to the Jolley River to fish the very first of an outgoing tide. The two anglers were tossing finger mullet under float rigs and at the first stop, a small creek run out, Tommy hooked up with a lively Seatrout on his first cast! I thought to my self, "oh boy, here we go"! But although it was a beautiful morning with just a slight breeze and overcast skies, the "good" fish didn't want to cooperate. I think we picked up one more Trout at that spot then we moved down the river about 100 yards and set up outside a larger creek. Here, both Tandy and Tommy got bite after bite after bite after bite, but they turned out to be small "yellow tail" perch. We moved around in Jolley River, caught a couple of more Trout and Bluefish then we did find a nice feisty Redfish over some flooded oysters. We made the run around to Bell River to fish some docks and all three of us landed fish right off, then it slacked to nothing. We move to an adjacent dock and picked up one more Redfish. Our last stop was at a large group of exposed oysters and here the bite was decent. Both anglers found Seatrout biting as the river rushed around the oysters. When this bite slowed, we called it a day, another great one to be out on Amelia Island waters!
