Left The Trout Biting

From aggravating winds the last two days to almost none today.  I met Dr. Paul Wozny and is cousin Andy out at the Goffinsville Park boat ramp early and we were spraying insect repellant right off to chase off the sand gnats! We headed over to and through Horsehead to fish the other side of Jackstaff with the tide still having a couple of hours of outgoing. Both anglers were tossing jigs and live shrimp in the calm waters and although we had perfect conditions, we were only able to pick up one hungry Seatrout that Andy caught. We
fished that area for a good while then ran back through the marsh to Nassau River and found some exposed oyster beds. Here, they both picked up a couple of small Trout then we bumped up the river a ways and fished a marsh run out. Again, a couple of Trout and one of them of keeper size. We moved on up to Twin Creeks and here things heated up a bit. Both anglers began catching feisty Redfish - 3 or 4 apiece, then Paul had a stronger hookup. He played the fish patiently and soon landed a nice keeper sized 20" Slot Redfish. After the bite slowed, we ran up west of Bubblgum Reef, fished the oysters, but had not bites, so we ran down to Broward Island to fish the very last of an outgoing tide there. We immediately began to catch fish. The Trout were biting out deep and most all were of keeper size. We also picked up a couple of more Reds. We got down to the last of the live shrimp and it was time to go so we called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
