Double Slam

The weather has been unbelievable great all week and today that held true. I met Scott Jones down at the Sawpit Creek boat ramp and we headed up the Amelia River, cutting in at Jackstaff to fish an outgoing tide with float rigs and live shrimp. We eased along the bank with Scott tossing the shrimp to the shoreline and after a short stretch he had a hookup. After playing the fish perfectly, he soon landed a nice Redfish. We continued to fish the area, tangled with a couple of Ladyfish, then crossed over to fish a sandbar that was still
covered. Scott picked up a keeper sized Flounder then we got into some Seatrout, finding that they were out deeper and that they would pick up our jig and shrimp as it swept along with the current. This gave Scott his Amelia Island Back Country Slam. We got a good handful of Trout and when Scott landed a big one we decided to move on and see what else we could find. Our next stop was at some docks at Seymore's Pointe where we had no real bites then we eased over to Bubblegum Reef where we each landed a hard fighting Jack Crevalle. We made the run down to Broward Island as the tide reached the bottom and picked up one more Slot Redfish and another keeper sized Flounder to give us a Double Slam. With that, we called it  day, another great one to be fishing Amelia Island waters!
