followed that with a keeper sized Flounder. We moved to another dock and Ashley got in on the action when she had a good hookup with a feisty Redfish, which she landed expertly. Marcus had really strong bite up between some pilings and sure enough, the big fish was having none of coming to the boat, instead, it found its way back into the pilings and broke itself off. OUCH! I felt sure we'd left a fish back at the original dock and so we circled back and within minutes Marcus had another strong hookup. But it too was a wiley fish and stayed up in the pilings and it too broke it self off.
fished a short stretch again and, BOOM! Big Fish On! I had just commented that this was the same spot that Patrick had caught his "Tournament Redfish" last year and now Marcus had one on! He played the big fish from the oyster bank out to the boat and back to the oyster bank and then from port to starboard across the stern and soon landed a big 26 1/2" Tournament Redfish of his own! Later he followed that up with a nice feisty Redfish. We continued on around to fish Tiger Island where the anglers had some good bites but it took Patrick to put the final touch on the trip when he caught a nice Seatrout. With that, we called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.,
