Slot Reds And A Bunch of Trout

I had the pleasure of fishing with John and Andrew Allen again today who were visiting Amelia Island on their first leg of a vacation.  We met down at the Big Talbot Island Park boat ramp this morning at the peak of high tide and headed up to the Horsehead area to fish with some top water lures.  We had a few "spits" at the lures but no takers so we switched to float rigs and mud minnows as soon at the tide started out.  This did the trick and the anglers started picking up some fish.  They landed a number of Seatrout, a few Ladyfish and a Blue then John had a strong hook up and landed a nice Slot Redfish.  We eased along a bank flooded over the oysters and they picked up some more Trout along the way.  We made a run around to Nassau River and fished the Twin Creeks and again picked up Trout, a small Red, and a few Jack Crevalles.  Then Andrew had a slow take, patiently waited, then hooked up.  He played the fish perfectly and we soon netted a nice keeper sized Flounder.  He caught a 2nd Flounder later, too.  We made our last stop at Bubblegum Reef and landed one more Slot Redfish, then called it a day, another great one to be out on
Amelia Island waters!
