Workday Fishing

I also fished this afternoon, meeting Jovanna Morgan and her work associates Jeff and Roger up at the north end boat ramp. The tide had been going out for an hour or so we ran north and west, half way to the Jolley, and made our first stop at a large runout with plans to fish jigs and live shrimp. Jeff got on the board quickly when he boated a hungry Whiting. But we had no more real bites so we moved on around to the Jolly River.

All three anglers were tossing the jigs and within minutes Jovanna landed a nice Seatrout then all three anglers had put a Trout in the boat! That was a nice flurry of catching. We worked the bank up to the first creek then ran further up the river and fished some more exposed oysters. Although we had a shark sighting, we had not takers so we ran back and fished the logs of Tiger. The fish catching wasn't "on fire" but we did pick up a couple of feisty Redfish, a keeper sized Sheepshead, and  hard fighting Black
"puppy" Drum, and maybe another Trout.

Our last stop was around at Lanceford Creek, fishing some dock pilings and again, we caught a handful of fish. Jeff had a strong hookup and caught a big Bluefish then Roger followed that up with a nice Redfish catch. We fished right up to the last shrimp then called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
