Finding a Slot Red

The weather was beautiful the day after Christmas and turned out to be great for fishing. I had met Gregg Gannett and his dad Gene down at the Atlantic Seafood dock shortly after the tide had started back in. It was a bit chilly as we made our first run but when we eased into our first spot we forgot about the chill when we began to catch fish! The two anglers were tossing live shrimp on jigs and caught one Redfish after another up to 17 3/4". Gregg picked up a nice 18" keeper sized Seatrout during the marathon and just before we left the area he battled a Slot sized 23" Red to the net.  The tide was up so we made a run to Jolley River, fished some flooded oysters, then worked our way around to Bell River to fish some docks. The fishing was hot early and fell off late,  but with the weather so nice, it was a great day to be out fishing Amelia Island waters!
