We Squeezed in a Trip

After looking at the weather forecast last night we decided to move up a fishing trip today, going 30 minutes earlier and getting in some fishing before the rain storms came through. I met Robert Elarbee and his brother down at the Sawpit Creek boat ramp and we made a run up the Nassau River in a slight amount of fog to fish some flooded marsh grass on the last of an incoming tide with live shrimp and float rigs. I think our first cast produced a nice 20" Seatrout! We fished the area pretty good and picked up another Trout, a nice Redfish, some Jack Crevalle's and a couple of Ladyfish. We then
worked the bank and Robert hooked up and landed a Big 22" Seatrout (putting him tied for first in the Anglers Mark 2016 Bragging Rights Tournement-Seatrout Category) Scroll down the right side of this report for standings. They then landed a fat 25" Slot Redfish before we headed over to Seymore's Pointe where we got into a mess of Mangrove Snapper, some of which were of keeper size. Our next stop was over in Jackstaff and here they had some good bites before Robert hauled in one more Slot Redfish. It was a good day of fishing with a good variety of keeper sized fish caught here at Amelia Island, Florida.
