Trout Filets Coming Up!

I had the pleasure of fishing with Clint and Jean Davis again yesterday morning, meeting them down at the Sawpit Creek boat ramp. There had been forecasted rain but these two anglers were game to go fishing anyway!  We made the run up the Nassau River to Pumkin Hill and began to toss float rigs with live shrimp up to some flooded grass patches on the very top of a high tide. We were only in to fishing for a few minutes when Jean's float disappeared and she had a hookup, a nice keeper sized Seatrout!  Shortly after hat Clints float vanished with a vengeance and his drag began to rip, FISH ON!  I at once thought "big Redfish" but as the fish
kept going and going we had the sinking feeling - a Shark. Ouch. But it was a good fight and fun to catch and after we got it boatside we were back to fishing.

We worked that area thoroughly and every once in a while picked  up a Trout with a Redfish or two added in and ended up with a couple more keeper Trout. Our next stop was down at the Spanish Drop area where we worked the bank with float rigs on a now outgoing tide. We picked up ONE (1) Redfish. The very same spot the day before I guestimate we caught 20-25 fish! Crazy how one day makes a difference!

The docks at Seymore's were our next stop and here Clint got on the "keeper board" in a big way, catching two nice 18"  keeper Seatrout on jigs and shrimp. We finished up fishing the mouth of Jackstaff then called it  day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida
