Beautiful Day, Lot's of Fish

Harold Cubbidge treated his grandsons Gabe and Jordan to an Amelia Island back country fishing trip today on The Anglers Mark.  It was still dark when we headed out of the marina and eased through the no-wake zone to begin the fishing trip up at the Jolley River.  The tide had just changed and started in so when we got to Jolley Bank we pointed the bow of the boat into the current and began fishing the oyster lined bank.  It took about 15 minutes of casting before the anglers had a good bite, but boy after that, things really got hot.  They worked the bank thoroughly and caught a good "mess" of feisty Redfish and also had a large handful of Puppy Drum, some Croaker and Snapper.   Gabe hauled in a Seatrout and later landed a nice keeper sized 17" Flounder.  Harold was letting the young men catch the fish but after they had caught a few, he joined in a hooked up with a Red, too.  We fished the same bank with float rigs once the oysters had covered, had a few bites, but no real action, so we headed over to Tiger inlet.  The anglers picked up a couple of more Trout and Snapper, then we made our last stop outside of Tiger where Gabe landed another Redfish.  With that, we called it a day, another great one to be out on Amelia Island's beautiful waters!
