Big Reds Out Deep
I fished this morning with Randall Lockhart and his girlfriend Chelsie, beginning early this morning with some pretty cold temperatures, but warming nicely as the day went on. We made our first stop at Tiger Island with as the tide had been coming in for a few hours and....BOOM, FISH ON...the first three casts! Randall was doing the catching at first but Chelsie stepped up to the challenge and began to put feisty Redfish in the boat, too. Randall was fishing his jig and shrimp slowly back to the boat and found a
big Slot Redfish out deep a couple of times. The couple ended up
with about a dozen feisty Reds and three Slot Reds to 24 1/2" before we moved on to fish the flooded oyster beds. The sun was up by now, the temperature was getting milder and we had very little wind. Even though we the fish were scarce around the marsh grass, it was still a great day to be fishing out on Amelia Island waters!
