Trout Bring Us Back

After a slow day yesterday I was looking forward to redeeming myself today! I met Jim Hanger and his son-in-law Steve and grandson Nathan down at the Atlantic Seafood dock. We had a live well full of live shrimp and mud minnows and with the tide getting low and still going out, we made our first stop up at Eagans Creek to fish some dock pilings. The three anglers began making their casts to the pilings and after a short while they began to get bites then hookups. Most of the fish were out deep, on the bottom and
very subtle - a bump, bump, bump and a hookup. Steve got it going with a keeper sized Trout then Nathan hauled one in then Jim got in on the action when he boated a keeper sized Redfish. Then all three anglers were jockeying for position to get their casts up to the pilings and it was a fish catching time for a good while. After putting a few more keeper sized fish in the box along with a bunch of throw backs we ran around to Tiger Island to fish the incoming tide.  We had neighbors fishing but we were able to find some spots to fish.  Nathan added another keeper sized Trout and all three
anglers had fish.  As the fish bite slowed to a halt we decided to head in and count it as another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
