Back to Work

After a couple of days off I was back to work today, fishing with Brian and Peggy Palmer and meeting them first down at the Sawpit Creek boat ramp. The tide had been coming in for a couple of hours but we tried the bridge pilings with some jigs and live shrimp for just a bit before we headed north and west up the Nassau River to make our next stop at some docks at Seymore's Pointe. Brian was making excellent casts while Peggy "coached him up" but we had no takers.

We came back to Twin Creeks on the Nassau, switched to float rigs and drifted the mouths - no luck. We moved down to Spanish Drop and worked that bank thoroughly and this paid off when we got to the "hot" spot - Brian hooked up and landed  a couple of hungry Seatrout.

We headed up the Nassau then, made a stop at some docks at Seymore's Pointe and switched back to the jigs. All three of us were tossing baits - Peggy had a good bite - then shortly afterwards Brian hooked  up. This fish was pulling a bit harder but Brian kept the pressure on, worked it to the boat, and landed a nice 18" Seatrout. A few minutes later he had another one one - it was pulling just as hard but this one threw the hook - Ouch! We were getting these on 1/4 jigs, baited with a live shrimp, tossing them up into 12' of water and letting it fall down the drop off. 

We fished Pumpkin Hill for a bit but the wind was not cooperating with our drifts, then fished Christopher Creek to wrap up the day. Although it had been a tad bit slow, the weather was perfect, we caught a few fish, so we counted it as another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
