Multi Spot Redfish

Boy what a beautiful morning we had today! Almost zero wind, mild temperatures, and sunny skies. I met Mark Von Weihe and his two sons Max and Ryan down at the Atlantic Seafood dock almost at sunrise (with the time change) and after a brief safety orientation, headed north to fish Tiger Island as the tide came in. I think it was Ryan's first cast and we had a big fish on! But it was not to be this time so we got all three anglers rigged and fishing. Max got things going when he put the first feisty Redfish in the boat, then all three
anglers were catching Reds. Ryan picked up a hungry Seatrout then Mark put a keeper sized one in the boat. Almost every trip we find "multi-spot" Reds and today was no exception when Ryan landed an eleven spotter. We continued to fish the area, caught a good mess of Reds and a handful of Trout, then moved around to fish the flooded oysters with float rigs. Young Max had the binoculars out and was finding and naming bird life along the shore. We fished a few spots, had one more strong hookup and break off, then called it
a day, another great one to be fishing Amelia Island waters!
