Summer Time Fishing at Amelia Island

I had the pleasure of fishing with the Grimes family this morning - Bo and Tonya along with their two children Ira and Anna Belle. We had met down at the Sawpit Creek boat ramp and under blue skies, we headed north up the Nassau River to fish some dock pilings on the very first of an incoming tide. It didn't take long - I think the first cast - and Bo had hooked up and landed a nice keeper sized Seatrout! We continued to fish, had a strong hookup and breakoff, then Bo put a feisty Mangrove Snapper in the boat then Tonya
topped it with a large keeper sized Snapper of her own. Bo tussled with a Salt Water Catfish then we headed over to Broward Island. Here, Bo had a good hookup and landed a nice Slot Redfish and later Tonya added a keeper sized Flounder to round out an Amelia Island Back Country Slam of Seatrout, Redfish and Flounder. With that, we called it a day, another great one to be fishing Amelia Island waters.
