Ups and Downs

 My "theory" this time of year is that the water temperature rises with the air temps, and it falls with the air temps and the fish get confused.  And of course, there's the theory about fishing during a full moon!  All week we've had beautiful weather, a full-ish moon, and cooler temperatures than last week and the fish bite had been somewhat down. Thursday was pretty good but yesterday, not so much. But luckily I had some anglers that had the right mindset - getting out on the water during a beautiful day and spending some time tossing a line!  I had met David Gray and his fishing partner Dick Conley down at Sawpit Creek boat ramp and knowing that we had the first of an incoming tide, we made the long run up and then around to Broward Island. 

The two anglers were casting live shrimp on a jigs and we had umpteen "hard" bites and finally hooked some up - small but feisty Sheepshead. I kept waiting for a good Redfish bite - we had one, but never that "big one".  We moved down the way few times, fished the bank, and picked up a couple of hungry Seatrout out deep. 

We then ran back to Nassauville and fished between two docks and here Dick found a couple of Seatrout out deep, one of which was of keeper size. Moving around the corner we fished float rigs on the last of an incoming tide and caught a handful of Mangrove Snapper, just undersized. 

After fishing Spanish Drop with the floats, we ran thru Horsehead and fished a stretch of flooding grass with the floats, to no avail. We had caught a few fish, enjoyed some great sunshine, seen Bald Eagles, Herons and Oyster Catchers, so as we headed back to the ramp we counted it as another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
