Redfish Onslaught

We had sunny skies today but it was a little breezy when I met Curtis and Donna Cooper and their son Cash down at the Fernandina Beach Harbor Marina. We made a long run up to Bell a River in hopes that we'd find fish around some dock pilings. The anglers were making good casts, had a few bites, but only had one Seatrout. We moved around to fish the MOA (Mother of All) Spot, fished it thoroughly, and had no fish. Our next stop was Tiger Island and like it's been for months, it was Game On. Young Cash started things off almost immediately when he hooked up, battled, and
landed a nice Slot sized 24" Redfish! From then on, he and his dad traded reeling in smaller but feisty Redfish a and every once in awhile they'd put a Slot in the boat. Donna continued to be persistent and landed a Red and a Seatrout. Curtis added another 24" Red and a keeper sized Seatrout, along with some smaller ones. We had almost non-stop action for the last two hours of the trip making it another great day to be fishing Amelia Island waters!
