Double Hookup on First Casts

Wade Dial and his son, Pearson fished with me on Sunday morning.  We left the Atlantic Seafood boat ramp at 7:30am and headed up Lanceford Creek to fish the dock pilings on an outgoing tide.  The oysters were just beginning to show so I set Pearson up with a float rig and live shrimp while Wade tossed a jig/shrimp combo.  We had just gotten their lines out when Wade's rod bent over and his drag began to rip out, FISH ON!  He handed the rod off to Pearson for the battle, then we saw that Pearson's float had disappeared!  Wade grabbed that rod and we had a "double" fish fight going on!  We landed Pearson's Slot Red then we got Wade's in for a "double" Redfish catch on the first cast of the day!  We continued to fish the falling tide and these anglers stayed busy, catching Redfish and keeper sized Seatrout for about two hours.  We moved on to Jolley River, caught a few Trout, then called it a day, another great one to be on Amelia Island waters!
