A Trout Kind of Day

We had a third day in a row of picture perfect weather today. I had met Shane Ward and his buddy Doug down at the City marina and after running north we made our first stop outside of Tiger Island with a high and still incoming tide. The two anglers were tossing float rigs with live shrimp up near the grass and the water was like glass! Although they had a couple of nibbles their were no takers so we ran through Tiger and around to Bell River to try the same tactic again. Here, both anglers found some Seatrout and we had a good flurry of fish catching. When it slowed down we ran back through Tiger and again to the outside where we set up at the mouth of a large marsh runout on the first of the outgoing tide, and again, picked up a few Trout. We fished the Jolley River with no real results then finished up over it Bell River, fishing some docks with jigs and shrimp. Both Shane and Doug found some Trout down deep and caught a good handful which was a great way to wrap up a beautiful day of fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
