I'm considering launching my Hobie PAs off the beach at Amelia Park at Nassau Sound. I'm thinking I would troll some hard bait and maybe fish under the bridge. I'd be grateful for any advice. I have never fished this area in a kayak.
Thanks,
Joe

Not sure where you mean when you say Amelia Park Beach???? Nassau Sound can be tricky with the strong currents.

As soon as you cross over the A1A bridge, right after Big Talbot Island, Amelia Island State Park is on the right. 4x4 vehicles can drive on the beach and I wanted to launch from there directly into Nassau Sound and troll.

ok I don't have 4x so forgot about that. I usually launch at Sawpit and fish from there.

Have you ever had any luck fishing the mouth of the sound where it's open water?

Strong currents out there. You can get into trouble quickly. You won't catch me out there......

I launch from the saw pit boat ramp and fish around that area up to the rocks under the small bridge and no further. The current is bad if you catch it at the wrong time. If you launch at the ramp you can go across the river and fish the feeder creeks and also the shore line of both sides and get good trout and red fish.

I'm going to take your advice and not push my luck even in a Hobie.

The docks to the north of the old bridge hold some big trout.

I'm looking forward to trying that area out. Been catching reds but haven't seen any trout in awhile.

Wrong time of year for that beach launch, do it in 6 months and you can get tarpon and monster jacks in that area. Pick a day with calm wind and go early, timed with the tides it’s very doable and you’ll see some big fish. This time of year I wouldn’t do it, especially on a spring tide and blowing north wind like we have this week.

Loaded the hobies up last week to try and wet a hook, when we got to cedar point wind was consistent 15. So we spent the day driving and looking for new places to launch from. That's when I ran across that beach. I haven't fished that area in many years and that was from the bridge. I'll take your wisdom and wait. The place just screamed fish me. I have confidence how the hobies perform in shift tides but don't want to get in a jam. There's four of us that want to fish there. When the time is right and you decide you want to fish there hit me up. We got a great group of die-hard yakers.
