Brute of a Redfish

What a nice day today! I fished this morning with Brent Berger, his son-in-law Ray, and grandson Caleb. We met down at the City marina and headed north to fish the logs of Tiger on an incoming tide, one that had been coming in for a few hours. The three anglers worked the entire island and only had a nibble here and there but just as we were about to leave, Brent had a strong hookup, and FISH ON! But it looked as if the fish had gotten off after the initial bite - NO, it was still on! Brent fought the big fish patiently and after multiple deep runs,  landed a thick 25" Slot Redfish, boy what
a fish! We fished the same spot a while longer then headed up to Jolley River to fish some flooding oyster beds. Caleb had a good hookup and landed a hungry Seatrout. We hit another area and had numerous bites, all small, landed a handful of baitstealers, then made our way back to the outside of Tiger. Here, the anglers had numerous bites, picking up a handful of small Trout, Needle Fish, and Perch, then Brent put two keeper sized Trout in the boat. We hit one more spot, caught a few more Trout, then headed back, counting at as another great morning to be fishing Amelia Island waters.
