The Girls are First and Last

I fished yesterday afternoon with BJ Hall, his wife Lisa and his dad Barry and his wife Zoe. We left the Fernandina Harbor Marina and headed up to fish the Jolley River on the first of an outgoing tide. The anglers were tossing live shrimp and mud minnows to the flooded oyster beds and it wasn't long before Zoe "knocked the skunk off" when she landed a nice Seatrout. We continued to fish and shortly afterwards she put another Trout in the boat. We ease up
into Snook Creek and both Barry and BJ switched to jigs, fishing on the bottom and picked up a couple of more Seatrout while Zoe caught them off the back of the boat on a float rig. We made the run to Tiger Island where Barry boated a keeper sized Trout then we ran around and fished some docks at Lanceford Creek, where we had no real bites. We hit one more spot at the mouth of Bell River and Lisa put the final fish in the boat, a Flounder, wrapping up another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
