Big Trout Leads to Banner Day
Redfish...and it turned out to be a big fat Seatrout! Boy what a fish! We fished the area for a while and both Dennis and Hal caught some hard fighting Jack Crevalle's, added a Black "puppy" Drum and a big Catfish then we worked down the oyster bed, still tossing the live shrimp. Hal hooked up and landed two keeper sized Seatrout. There was all kinds of bait moving in as we eased along the oysters then Hal had a good hookup, a good fight and soon landed a Slot sized 20" Redfish. While he was fighting it I saw another blow out of the area. Later we saw two Redfish tails up near the marsh grass but just like yesterday, they wouldn't take our bait. We fished some docks at Seymore's Pointe then worked our way down the rocks and here the fish catching got fast and furious. The two anglers had switched to float rigs and live shrimp and took turns hauling in hard fighting Mangrove Snapper. They caught 'em until time to go! It was another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida!
