Amelia Island March 2012

I think the crazy weather has skipped us a month because February felt like March - just a little cool and a ton of sand gnats!  If you remember last month I advised to "Fish Structure".  Well, we did that and caught quality Redfish, Seatrout, and Sheepshead with most in the keeper size range.  Something else we found out was to fish SLOOOOWWW! We found that the Reds almost had to have the jig and shrimp served up on a platter, but when you put it in front of them, they'd bite.  We also had some good hookups of nice Seatrout with artificial's on red jig heads.  The traditional white grub with pink tail were excellent.  March should bring more of the same for Redfish, Drum and Sheepshead.  The Seatrout bite should pick up.  Throw those artificial grubs up to the shoreline and jig them back deep for the keeper sized trout.  Shrimp under a float rig at runouts will pick up the smaller trout.  Whiting fishing should be getting hot about now. Try anchoring in Nassau Sound and drop bottom rigs with a small piece of shrimp.  Follow the catch at the Amelia Island Fishing Report or Get Away From it All,  give me a shout and we'll go fishing!
