A Flurry of Fish Catch'n Early

It was cool and "breezy" yet sunny this morning when I met Michelle McGee and her boyfriend William down at the Atlantic Seafood dock.  But we were ready for the cold and after the first run things began to heat up. Both Michelle and William were tossing jigs and live shrimp and it wasn't long before Michelle "knocked the skunk off" when she landed a nice keeper sized Seatrout. Then right after that William hooked up with hard fighting feisty Redfish and after patiently playing the fish, he worked him to the net. From
then on for about an hour the two anglers were catching fish. The landed a handful of Seatrout and about 6-7 total Redfish. We worked the area thoroughly then ran over to Bell River to fish a flooded oyster bank with float rigs and shrimp. After getting no real bites we made a longer run up to Lanceford Creek, fished a marsh lined shore and caught three more hungry Seatrout. Our last stop was further up Lanceford at a grass patch and again they found a few more Trout with William pulling in another, bigger, keeper sized one. The sun was up and things had warmed up nicely and we knew as we headed in that it is was another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island.
