Good Battle With Oversized Redfish
toward the boat because we didn't think it was much of a fish until it moved on past and began to rip some drag! FISH ON! Tom had a good fish and he played it patiently as it went deep and long. He kept the pressure on and after a good battle landed an oversized 29" Redfish! We worked the bank, picked up another Red, then moved on up the way and fished a marsh run out, but with little luck. Our next stop was at some docks at Seymore's Pointe and here Al put a keeper sized Trout in the boat. We ran through the marsh and fished the other side of Jackstaff and picked up another trout, still fishing with jigs. Tom put a small but feisty Black "puppy" Drum in the boat. We moved further up a creek and broke out the float rigs. This produced another keeper sized Seatrout (all fish were released today). Our final stop was back at Christopher Creek and although we had a few bites, we had no real takers other than a hungry Mangrove Snapper. With that, we called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
