Post Holiday Fishing Trip

The long weekend is over and I had the opportunity to fish with Ron and Eric Brown this morning, and boy what a pretty morning it was!  We met at the Atlantic Seafood dock and headed up to Lanceford Creek to fish some dock pilings on the very last of an outgoing tide.  The anglers hadn't been fishing long with mud minnows and jigs when Eric hooked up and landed a nice feisty Redfish.  Knocking the "skunk" off the boat real early gave me high hopes for a "fish catching" day.  We fished a while longer and Eric put his Redfish in the boat and the friendly competition was on! 
Our next stop was Tiger Island and Eric went one up on his dad when he landed another Redfish then we made a run around to Jolley River to fish "the bank".  There was a flurry of bites with Ron landing another Redfish to tie it up then Eric put one in the boat to pull ahead.  But Ron was not to be outdone and found a nice keeper sized Flounder.  Eric tangled with a couple of high flying Ladyfish but they threw the hook right at the boat.  We fished Snook Creek with no real bites then moved around to the MOA as our last stop.  Just as we were about to pull up, Eric had a hookup and landed a hungry Seatrout which put him in lead of the 2014 Brown's Vacation Fishing Tournament!  It also gave the duo an Amelia Island Back Country Slam of Redfish, Flounder and Seatrout. With that, we called it a day, another great one to be fishing Amelia Island waters!
