first stop before we crossed over he creek and eased along the shoreline. Zach had made a good cast up near the grass line when his float disappeared and, FISH ON! This was a hard fighting fish and ripped some drag out, then it took Zach from the stern to the bow and around the trolling motor. But Zach kept the pressure on and soon landed a nice Jack Crevalle. Boy that was a fight! We ran through Horsehead and over to some docks at Seymore's Pointe. The ladies stayed with the float rigs while Zach and Joe took the stern and tossed jigs. Again, Zach hooked up, had a crazy battle, and landed another Jack. After he put one more of these hard
(edible) fish! We thought we might fish on the other side of Seymore's but the wind was really blowing. But we stayed long enough for Joe to get one cast up near the rocks and even as we were getting ready to leave he hooked up with a float rig and had his rod bend double. Joe kept the pressure on and slowly worked the fish in and eventually landed a nice feisty Redfish. We left that area right after that and went back to the other side of Seymore's and here Emily put the biggest fish of the day in the boat. It was another hard running, drag ripping fish and had no plans to be caught but Emily had it's number. Even though it wrapped itself around a piling, she kept the pressure on and after we got the rod handed around the piling she worked it out into deeper water and landed another big Jack, now that was a battle! With that, we called it a day, another great (albeit windy) one to be fishing here at Amelia Island.
