Gettin Out Early

We wanted to get some fly fishing in today so we got out a little earlier than normal. I met David Ehrler and his son Jack down at the Big Talbot Island Park at 6:30 this morning and we made a run around to Pumpkin Hill in hopes that the nice Trout were still there. They were not. David getting good loops with his casts and presenting the fly perfectly but we didn't get any real bites on a topwater Gurgler or a Shrimp pattern. Young Jack was tossing a float rig with mud minnows and he wasnt' getting much action either.

We came back to the Horsehead area, poked the bow up into the grass at a half a dozen places but saw no Redfish tailing. After that, we stopped back by some docks at Seymore's Pointe and here the anglers "got on the board" when they landed some nice keeper sized Mangrove Snapper.

We later fished a couple of marsh run outs and both anglers tangled with and landed some hard fighting Jack Crevalle. And with that, we called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
