Getting the Kids Out

We had a foggy morning today, somewhat cool, but still a good day to go fishing! I met Robert Elarbee and his three kids down at the Sawpit Creek boat ramp and we headed up the intercoastal (slowly) with a plan to dip into Jackstaff and fish float rigs on an incoming tide. Although the fist spot didn't off, Frederick was able to land a nice Seatrout at the second stretch of marsh that we fished.

We ran thru Horsehead and stopped at another length of marsh and this did the trick. All three of the young anglers began to catch fish
- namely Trout. We worked that area thouroughly, catch trout here and there, then moved down the way, and caught more trout.  All were on float rigs in about 4 foot of water, fishing live shrimp. Although the sun never came out, these youngsters had a great time landing hungry Seatrout so we counted it as another great day to be out on the water here at Amelia Island, Florida.
