no takers. We moved back into a larger creek with both Barry and Matt tossing their floats and live shrimp to the bank and BOOM! Barry's float disappeared with a vengeance, FISH ON! I was thinking "Redfish" the way it was bending the rod but as Barry worked it slowly to the boat we saw that it was a big Seatrout. He played it patiently and soon landed a nice 20" Trout! Matt got in on the action, landing a Ladyfish then a couple of fat Seatrout, then Barry put another big one in the boat, this one at 18", then Matt put a keeper sized 16" trout in the boat. I had Matt switch to a jig/shrimp combo and he caught a couple of fish on that, too. We ran around to Seymore's Pointe, fished some rocks with little success, then moved around to a dock where we picked a up a few small Mangrove Snapper and a feisty Redfish. Our last stop was down at Broward Island and it was a good last stop! Both Matt and Barry caught a few Seatrout, a couple of Redfish, with one of Matt's being right at Slot Size, then Barry landed a Sheepshead to round out the duo's Amelia Island Back Country Slam. With that, we called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
