Snapper Still Here
first stretch, a feisty Redfish, and another couple of Ladyfish. We then fished another bank and here picked up a couple of more Seatrout (all of these on float rigs with live shrimp). We then fished a creek run out, this time with a jig and shrimp. Duncan was fishing the rig perfectly and when his line went tight he set the hook and hooked up with another hard fighting Redfish. We made a run around to Seymore's Pointe to fish some rocks with the float rigs again and within minutes Duncan had a hookup! This fish was fighting hard to get back in the rocks but Duncan worked him out patiently and put a nice keeper sized Vermillion Snapper in the boat. For the next 45 minutes we had good bites and hookups and a few of them turned out to be about 16" - the biggest Snapper we've had all year. I counted 8-10 Snapper that we put in the boat before the Needlefish began to get too pesky so we made a run to briefly fish Broward Island where we picked up one more Redfish. With that, we called it a day, another great one to be fishing Amelia Island waters!
