Wrapped a Week Up

I finished up my week fishing with Dale Bullard and his fishing buddy Cotton after meeting them down at the Sawpit Creek boat ramp. We had a live well full of mud minnows as we headed up the Nassau River on a tide that had been coming in a few hours. Someone was at Spanish Drop so we continued on to Twin Creeks where we turned into the current and fished it with jigs. We had a few bites but no real takers so I began to let the boat drift with the current and  we did end up catching a Catfish and a hard fighting Jack Crevalle. 

We fished a dock with the jigs for just a few casts, then then ran down to Pumpkin Hill and switched to
float rigs and let them drift long. The two anglers picked up a couple of high flying Ladyfish, a couple of Mangrove Snapper, and a hungry Seatrout. We moved around the corner and picked up a couple of more Ladyfish and another Seatrout. 

After fishing between another couple of docks at Littlefield, we ran thru the marsh and fished a stretch. They caught a feisty Redfish and another Trout along there, then we spotted some "tails" up in the flooded marsh which was cool to see. I tied on a weedless spoon and we eased up into the marsh but those fish were wary and quickly sunk and disappeared.   The weather had been outstanding all morning with a slight breeze and not too hot temperatures and we had some good action, here and there so as we headed back to the ramp we counted it as another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
