Fishing Before the Storm

I fished this afternoon with Cale Conry, is son Quintin and their friend Ryan - meeting them down at the City marina with plans to fish the last few hours of an incoming tide. We ran up to the outside of Tiger Island and fished some flooding oyster beds. Quintin had the hot rod early, landing a hungry Seatrout and a feisty Bluefish. Cale put a small Trout in the boat and Ryan had a nice fat one at boatside before he "quick released" it. We made our next stop further up the beach of Tiger and here we had a number of good bites but no takers.  After bouncing over to Manatee Cove the
fishing picked up a bit - they had a couple of more Trout come to the boat. We ran through Tiger Basin and over to Bell River, stuck with the float rigs, had a number of good bites but no takers, then made a move to fish some flooded grass in Lanceford Creek. Both Quintin and Ryan were making good, long casts but we had only been fishing for a few minutes when an approaching thunderstorm appeared to be coming too close so we called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
