Two Slot Reds

I fished this morning with Dennis Brizzi who had brought along his friend Hal. We met at the City  marina and headed up to Eagans Creek to fish the very last of an outgoing tide with jigs and live shrimp. The anglers were getting pecks at their bait by bait stealers but  no much else until Hal had a strong bite and FISH ON! He played the fish perfectly and landed a nice 20" Slot Redfish. We switched to another dock and Hal picked up another feisty Red. Our next stop was at Tiger Island where we had to ease over the sandbar at the entrance as the tide had just started back in. We fished the logs up and down picking up a small Black "puppy" Drum and a couple of Lady Fish. After running up to Jolley River to fish the "bank" we found a small Snapper, some pinfish, another Ladyfish and Dennis caught a nice, but small, Seatrout. Our last stop was over at Bell River and here we found another couple of puppy Drum and Dennis worked in one more keeper sized Redfish to wrap up another great day of fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida
