Safe Harbor Boys Home Redfish Spot Tournament

I fished Friday with friends Tim Parker and his Brian Knicley and then again Saturday in the Safe Harbor Boys Home Redfish Spot Tournament and we had a great time of catching fish! Just not the right one! Friday, there were cloudy skies with storm clouds passing to the right and left us,and the wind picked up, but we never got hit by any serious rain. We caught Weakfish, Seatrout, Redfish, Black Drum and Sheepshead with one of the Redfish being in the Slot and with NO Spots!  On the day of the tournament we were ready. We had already purchased live shrimp and had them in the live well with fresh water and an aerator. We were up early and on time at the boat ramp in the dark and after launching made it to our first spot just at the sun came up. Almost immediately did Brian hookup with a fat Weakfish then he followed that up with a Seatrout. We fished the area thoroughly and landed Redfish after Redfish after Redfish but all were unersized and none had more than 4 spots. We made a move down to Broward Island and again found numerous small Redfish and then ended up fishing Seymore's Pointe where we had our choice of catching Redfish or Seatrout, but no Slot Reds that we could think about entering. It was two great day of fish catching with two friends and even though we didn't have fish to enter, we knew it was a great time to be out fishing Amelia Island waters!
