Started With Trout Ended With Reds
some hungry Seatrout and then they really got the hang of it and hooked up regularly. Some of the Trout were of keeper size to 17" but we threw them all back to be caught another day. Then they had some stronger hookups and the fish fights ensued, FISH ON! The trick was to keep these big fish out of the dock pilings and I think it was a tie - David and Tom boated four Slot sized Reds to 24.5" and I think four other big Reds found their way into the pilings and broke themselves off. There were a number of smaller "feisty" Reds caught. They also picked up two Black "puppy" Drum to round out their Amelia Island Back Country Slam of Seatrout, Red Drum and Black Drum. We ventured out into the wind to fish Tiger Island and even they we got buffeted around pretty good, they landed another small Redfish and one of the bigger Seatrout of the day, caught way down deep. With that, we called it a day, another great one to be fishing Amelia Island waters.
