Quick Start With The Trout

 We had a beautiful morning today when I met Barrett and Jo Blank and their son Jean out at the Goffinsville Park boat ramp early this morning. The sun was just coming up as we motored down the Nassau River, down to Spanish Drop, and began fishing a large marsh run out at almost dead low tide. Bait was getting busted as the trio of anglers made their first casts and wouldn't you know, it, BOOM! Fish On!  Boom, Fish On! Both Jean and Jo had hookups and after working them to the boat we netted a couple of nice Seatrout. Barrett, not to be outdone, had a quick hookup, too. Another Trout brought to the boat. We worked along that bank and caught a handful of more Seatrout, had a "drive by" by a Bonnethead Shark, then Barrett had a strong bite, a hookup, and expertly landed a keeper sized Black Drum.

Our next stop was down at Broward Island and here Jean got hot - he caught and landed a couple of Mangrove Snapper, one of which was of keeper size, then, after losing is bait to a nibbler, he was ready this time and BAM! Set the hook and big fish on!  Jean played it patiently and soon landed a nice keeper sized Sheepshead.  After fishing another spot at the island to no avail, we ran back to Nassauville and fished between some docks, but only got some nibbles.

Back to Pumpkin Hill, now fishing float rigs on a flooding tide and again, only
some nibbles. Although we had had some good action early, the fish must have decided to go in and watch some football! But it was a beautiful day and as we headed in we counted it as another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
