Big Reds and Big Trout

Stephen and Linda Lee and their friend Ray took in an Amelia Island back country fishing trip
yesterday morning - and a beautiful one it was!  We headed up to Lanceford Creek to fish the incoming tide with the oysters just showing.  It wasn't long before Linda hooked up and brought to the boat a nice hungry Seatrout.  Then both Stephen and Ray had strong hookups and reeled in a few feisty Redfish and Linda added a couple.  Then, Linda's rod really bent over and when the drag starting singing I knew this was a BIG fish!  She worked the fish patiently and after a long battle we netted a nice 25 3/4" Redfish!  But not to be outdone, Stephen had a big hookup and his fish too was BIG!  He played the fish perfectly and soon landed a 26 1/2"
Red!  The anglers also added a 18" Seatrout to the mix.  We eventually made a run to the outside of Tiger Island and played with Blues, landing about a dozen, then we went in behind the island and the anglers caught a few more Trout with one being of keepers size.  With that, we called it a day, another great one to be out on Amelia Island waters!
