Reds and Trout and Flounder

The Kirday's were in town again, Paula and Aimee and their daughter Abbie and her friend Brooke. We met at the Atlantic Seafood dock early this morning and headed up to the Jolley River to fish the first of an outgoing tide. Fairly quickly did Aimee have a bite and although she missed the first one, she was ready the second time and caught a nice feisty Redfish, knocking the "skunk" off the boat! She then followed that up with a hungry Seatrout. We moved back to the mouth of Jolley fished a while, than moved around to Tiger Island. I think it was Paul's first cast and he had a good hookup. After patiently fighting the fish, he landed a nice keeper sized Seatrout. Then young Brooke had strong hookup and she too landed a feisty Redfish. Paul had the bow to himself and he made the most of it, landing another Redfish, a Seatrout, a Flounder and nice Bluefish. The baitstealers were ever present and every once in a while they'd snag one of them. All in all it was kind of a slow fish "catching" day, but still a great day to be out fishing Amelia Island waters!
