Flounder Bash

I had the pleasure of fishing today again with the Self family - Aaron and his two sons Isaac and David along with their grandfather Charlie. We met down at the Big Talbot Island Park boat ramp early this morning with a few hours of an outgoing tide left and headed  up the Amelia River to fish Jackstaff. The oysters were still covered but I had the anglers tossing jigs and mud minnows up to the bank. We hadn't gone but about 50 feet when David had a good hookup and the skunk was off early! He landed a
nice keeper sized Flounder. And not minutes later Isaac put one in the boat, too. Then David had another hookup and this was somewhat bigger. He played the fish perfectly and soon landed another keeper sized 16" Flounder, a fish we're going to start off the Flounder Bragging Rights in the 2015 Anglers Mark Bragging Rights Tournament! See standings by scrolling down the right side of this report. We fished the bank thoroughly, had a few nibbles, then moved across the creek to set up along a submerged sand bar. Just like yesterday, the Trout were there and Isaac and David and Grandad put fish in the boat. We ran around to Seymore's Pointe and here Aaron got busy, catching a feisty Redfish, a nice Seatrout, and a keeper sized Mangrove Snapper. Our last stop was down at Broward Island. We fished a small marsh run out where the bait was hopping and Isaac kept us in form when he landed another Flounder. With that, we called it a day, another great one to be fishing Amelia Island waters!
