It Was Hot For A While

I did a rare "double" today, fishing this afternoon, again out of Big Talbot Island Park, meeting Chris Lanford, his son Rainer, and their friend William just after lunch. We made the long run to Pumpkin Hill and fished some now exposed oysters on an outgoing tide. Although all three anglers seemed to be getting bites, we had no takers. Probably Blue Crabs!

We jumped down to Broward Island and worked the bank jigs and minnows and here we picked  up a few Seatrout, one of which was a really nice keeper size. The good thing was the island was blocking a pretty strong wind that had picked up The bad thing was it was HOT! 

We fished it about as long as we could stand it then ran back to the Horsehead area...and boy was it windy! We fished some docks at Seymore's Pointe then ran around and fished some area's in Jackstaff, but had no more luck. Even though it was a slow day, it was still a great day to be out on the water here at Amelia Island, Florida.
