Fish Catch'n Picking Up
getting bites immediately. Austin knocked the skunk off when he landed a feisty Redfish then Rusty put a rather large Ladyfish in the boat after a high flying battle. We fished the deep side of a sandbar and here things heated up. Both Austin and Rusty were hooking up with 14" Seatrout so Staci and Elizabeth picked up a rod and caught some, too! Rusty added hard fighting Jack Crevalle then a Flounder and Austin hauled in a small Stingray. We actually left the Seatrout biting, gambling that we might find something bigger. The gamble paid off as we set up off a dock over at Seymore's Pointe: The whole family was hooking up with Mangrove Snapper, small Redfish, Flounder and then Rusty had a bite that ripped some drag on his reel, FISH ON! He played the big fish patiently and soon landed a nice 19" Seatrout. Shortly after that Austin hooked up with what was probably the biggest fish of the day, but this big fish was having none of it and went right through the pilings, broke the leader, and kept going! We made final stop at Broward Island, caught another keeper sized Flounder and a small Red, then called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
