Big Mangrove Snapper Still in the Back Water

"Breezy" is what the weather forcasters call it - 10mph wind, not too bad and still fishable. So that's what me and John Brown and his wife Martha did this morning - went fishing. We met down at the Sawpit Creek boat ramp and headed up the Nassau River, running all the way to Broward Island to fish the last couple of hours of an outgoing tide. The wind wasn't a factor and the tide was right but the fish weren't cooperating as much as they hoped. John picked up a hungry Seatrout fishing a jig and live shrimp then added a feisty
Redfish to his catch. I'm not sure if we caught any more fish there before we headed back to Seymore's Pointe to fish a dock structure. Here, John caught another Trout or two and Martha got on the board with a feisty Redfish. We worked along some docks and both anglers had a flurry of fish catching, Reds and Trout. Our last stop was at the Nassauville rocks and things heated up nicely fishing float rigs and shrimp. Both John and Martha started hooking up with rather large Mangrove Snapper and boated their limit of keeper sized fish (all fish were released today). We left 'em biting, counting it as another great day to be fishing Amelia Island waters.
