Trout'n Reds

We waited for the bad weather to roll through this morning and met to fish this afternoon down at the Atlantic Seafood dock. Dennis Brizzi and his buddy Hal were ready to go so we headed north up to the outside of Tiger Island to fish some flooded oyster beds on a high and outgoing tide. The two anglers were tossing mud minnows under float rigs up near grass patches and things heated up fairly quickly. They put a good handful of Seatrout in the boat, along with a Bluefish and some baitstealing Perch. One of the Trout was of
keeper size, a nice 18"er.  We ran around and up to Jolley River to fish a large creek mouth and here the picked up a couple of Trout then they found some feisty Redfish to do battle with. We tried fishing back at the mouth of Jolley but the south wind was pushing the outgoing tide out creating a fast current that was a "pain" to fish. So, we ran around to Bell River, got out of the wind, switched to jigs, and picked up a couple of more Trout. Our last stop was back at Tiger Island and although the tide was almost perfect we had no real bites. But the skies had cleared and it turned out to be a beautiful afternoon, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island.
