Flounder Each Day

The beautiful weather continued today when I fished with Greg and Jodi Lane out of the Fernandina Beach City marina. We made our first stop up at Tiger Island, fished it thoroughly, and Jodi finally "knocked the skunk" off the boat when she landed a nice keeper sized Flounder. We ran up to the Jolly River and fished "the  bank" with float rigs but had no real bites. We came back to the outside of Tiger and stayed with the float rigs and here Jodi put a feisty Redfish in the boat then rounded out her very own Amelia Island Back Country Slam when she caught a hungry Seatrout. Greg put a
couple of Trout in the boat before we headed over to Bell River to fish a still flooding oyster bed. He had made an excellent cast and let his float drift naturally up to a grassy point and "BOOM", he had a fish on. He worked it patiently to the boat and landed a nice keeper sized Seatrout.  We had a nice variety and a couple of keeper sized fish to round out another great day to be out on Amelia Island waters.
