Super Slam?

I fished this afternoon with Phillip Maginnes and is daughter Kate - running up Lanceford Creek to fish some dock pilings while the tide was still going out. We had very few bites until Kate had a strong hookup and landed a nice feisty Redfish. We made the run around to Tiger Island and this did the trick. Both Kate and Phillip had good hookups, catching a good handful of Redfish and Seatrout, then they put a keeper sized Sheepshead in the boat to get an Amelia Island Slam, then Kate hauled in a Sheepshead to make
it a "Grande Slam". We fished up and down the island, picking up a Redfish here and Seatrout there, then Kate had another hookup and....landed a nice Black "puppy" Drum. So I guess they had an Amelia Island Back Country Super Grande Slam!  Redfish, Seatrout, Flounder, Sheepshead and Black Drum. One of the Seatrout Kate caught was 17.5", putting her in 2nd place in the 2015 Anglers Mark Bragging Rights Tournament. (Scroll down right side of this report for standings) All fish were released this trip. It's always fun for me to see father's and daughters getting out on the water and this turned out to be a great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
