Fishing Tips

You will see right away that these videos are not professional made! Many impromptu, spur of the moment ideas.  Anyway, you'll get an idea of how we're going to be fishing here at Amelia Island. Visit back because I plan to do a number of these video "tips".

5 Tips for Catching More Fish in the Back Country:

1) Know a few good knots and be confident in them and your equipment.
2) Make a plan based on the tides, weather, time of day and even day of the week.
3) Learn to cast side arm, overhead, and offshoulder. Learn to make pinpoint stops.
4) Move! If you're  not catching fish, move to your next spot.
5) Fish more often. You'll learn new spots and patterns. And...if you're catching fish at a particular spot ask yourself, "why am I catching fish here?" Try to duplicate that tide/area/day.

Great videos CaptN. If you get a chance and are willing, I would like to see how you rig a slip cork.

Thanks in advance and tight lines,

Lee,I use a little rubber "stopper" that I purchase from Amelia Island Bait and Tackle on 14th Street. You can slide that onto your line first, then a small bead, then the float, then a large bead and then tied to a weight with swivels attached at both ends. The weight has to be light enough not to pull the float under while it drifts. Then about a 18" fluorocarbon leader and the hook. You can adjust the stopper up and down the line depending on how deep you want your bait to drift. Sorry this is a year late! With Email, Text, Phone, Facebook it's hard to keep up with all the conversations! Thanks, L. Piper
