It Had To Have Been The Green Bobber

Of  the three float rigs, 2 had orange bobbers and one had a green.  The green bobber caught the fish today. I had picked up Henry Ross and his neighbor and fishing buddy Rex at their dock at Crane Island early and we made the run north, all the way up to Bell River and around the back way to Tyger, then eased out front to fish the first of a very high outgoing tide with float rigs and live shrimp. The first stretch of flooded marsh grass didn't produce a bite but after we crossed over a creek and fished another stretch we got a few bites with the floats disappearing. Then, after Rex had a made pin  point cast to a grassy island his green float went under, he tightened up and let the circle hook do it's thing and  he had a hookup. He patiently brought to the boat and net a hungry Seatrout.  A few short minutes later, after going back to the same spot, Rex hooked up and battled to the boat a feisty Redfish.

We then buzzed back thru Tyger and around to Lanceford Creek, ran up it a ways, and fished a bulkhead then a grassy island with the floats, to no avail. We fished a few run outs up Soap Creek, them some docks back at Lanceford with jigs and shrimp, then we made a run south to Piney Island where we set up current from some docks with the jigs. Somewhere in that stretch Henry battled and netted a couple of high flying "poor man's tarpon" - the Ladyfish. 

We made one final stop, heading back to Crane Island, fishing a drainage and here Rex caught and landed a feisty Black Drum (garnering an Amelia Island Back Country Slam) and then he battled another, keeper sized Black Drum to the net, which we photographed and released. The wind had picked up the last hour or so of the trip which limited where we could fish, but as we wrapped day, we counted it as another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
