Big Red Wraps Up A Monday Morning

Back to work after a rainy Easter Weekend! This morning I fished with Karl Shively and his fiancĂ© Amanda who were visiting Amelia Island and staying at the Amelia Addison House. They walked down to the marina and we left with a brisk west wind blowing, so we ran over to Bell River to fish some docks. Although we weren't tearing up the fish the two anglers had some good action to get them started. Amanda put a hungry Seatrout in the boat then followed that up with a feisty Redfish. Then Karl got in on the
action and boated a hard fighting Black "puppy" Drum, then Amanda landed one, too. When the bites got down to "baitstealers" we ran around to Tiger Island to fish the last of an outgoing tide. The two anglers caught a couple of more Trout and Drum, then Karl had a big bite, had it on for a while, then it threw the hook, OUCH! But he was not to be deterred and in  short while he had another, even bigger bite and, FISH ON!  Karl played the big fish patiently and after some deep runs he worked it to the surface and landed a nice 26" Slot Sized Redfish! Boy what a fish! we worked the island real good then made a brief stop on the outside of Tiger before heading in, counting it as another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
