Fishing With Opa

I fished this morning with Tom Schmeltzer and his 12 year old grandson, Avery, meeting down at the Atlantic Seafood dock and heading north to fish Tiger Island as the tide started back in. We only had mud minnows this morning as there is a short supply of live shrimp, but we made do and caught fish. Avery reeled in a nice feisty Redfish then both anglers caught fish, Reds and Seatrout. We fished the area thoroughly and when the tide got up we made a run
around to Jolley River to fish some flooded oyster beds. Here, Avery snagged a 2' long Gar and had him to the boat and "quick released" him. Later, Avery picked up a Flounder to round out his Amelia Island Back Country Slam of Redfish, Seatrout, and Flounder. We cast netted some more minnows then headed back, making one more stop before heading in, counting it as another great day to be fishing Amelia Island waters!
