Beautiful Day and Keeper Slam
along the bank, tossing the float rigs. Again, after only a few minutes Robin's float disappeared and, FISH ON! This was a bigger fish that was ripping some drag but Robin kept the pressure on and after a good battle landed a nice 20" Slot Redfish. And after that, no fish for the next 75 yards! We ran further up Jolley, fished some exposed oyster bars, then eased around to the MOA, still tossing float rigs. But when I switched Michael to a jig and shrimp, he got bites, landed a couple of Croaker, then had a stronger bite. This one was giving him some pull but he played it patiently and landed a
nice keeper sized Seatrout. Our next stop was around at Bell River to fish some docks. I believe it was Robin's first cast and BOOM! Big Fish On! This was even a bigger fish than before and it took a while to slowly work it to the boat, but Robin was up to the task and soon landed another 23" Slot Redfish. The two anglers had one more big bite but it threw the hook and with that, we called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
