Flounder More Abundant

I fished with David Howard and his son Graham, who brought along his friend Nick. We met down at the Big Talbot Island Park boat ramp this morning and although the bait shop was out of live bait, they did scrounge up a few mud minnows. I purchased some dead shrimp and before we left Sawpit we had cast for some finger mullet and pinfish to complete a smorgasbord of bait to offer our quarry.We headed up the Amelia River, turned into Jackstaff, and began tossing jigs baited with the variety. Nick put a small Croaker in the boat then followed that up with a keeper sized Flounder.
Later, David hauled in a small Bonnethead Shark. We tossed the net for some more bait then ran around to fish Bubblegum Reef where Graham snagged a "Toad" fish, but not much was biting there. We hit a dock over at Seymore's and here we had a little more action. Graham hooked up and patiently played to the boat a six spot feisty Redfish then David hauled one in too. They picked up another Toad fish then we ran down to Broward Island to wrap things up with David landing a Slot sized Redfish and Graham finishing it off with a nice keeper sized Flounder. With that, we called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
