We Got a Slam
and set the hook - FISH ON! I guessed what it was and after Jeff patiently played it to the boat my guess was confirmed, a nice keeper sized Flounder. And skunk off the boat! We fished one stretch, jumped over and fished a grassy point and after a few casts Jeff had another hookup, this one a fat keeper sized Seatrout. We made the run through Horsehead, set up current from a dock and began to toss jigs back to the pilings. Again, Jeff had the lucky rod and he hooked up and landed a feisty Redfish to round out his personal Amelia Island Back Country Slam. Lori was making excellent casts and getting a bite here and there but It just was not meant to be her day in the "fish catching" category. We fished Bubblegum Reef, Broward Island and another spot or two - had some good bites, but no takers, then we headed in, counting it as another great day to be fishing Amelia Island waters.
