I fished the Amelia Island back country on a trip set up by Dustin Taylor for he, his dad Ricky, and grandfather Rick - all experienced local anglers who normally fish down in Jacksonville. They came up Heckshire Drive and met me at the Big Talbot Island Park boat ramp at sunrise then we headed up the Nassau River to fish a creek run out. It only took a few minutes and grandad Rick had put a hungry Seatrout in the boat! I think he caught one or two more then Ricky picked up a couple. We hit an oyster outcrop and fished
Bubblegum Reef with limited success, then made the run to Broward Island to set up outside of another creek mouth. I think it was Dustin's first cast when he had a strange bite, but FISH ON! He played the fish patiently and after a good battle landed a nice 18" Flounder. Then Rick put another keeper sized Flounder in the boat and Ricky found a nice "honey hole" for feisty Redfish to round out an Amelia Island Back Country Slam. Grandad Ricky
made a toss to the same area and had a strong hookup and battle and landed a good keeper sized 19" Redfish. The three anglers caught a few more fish here then we made run back to Seymore's Pointe where they got into some fun-to-catch Mangrove Snapper. Both Rick and Ricky landed a couple of more Redfish. With that, we called it a day, another great one to be fishing Amelia Island waters!
