Big Flounder Tops Bragging Rights

We had an overcast sky this morning that made for some pleasant fishing down on the south end of the island today. I had met Don Norman and his dad, Don, down at the Goffinsville boat ramp and we ran back up the Nassau River to fish Broward Island as the tide reached its bottom. Younger Don knocked the skunk off when he landed a feisty Redfish and they may had one or two of them before the Don Sr. had a strong hookup, a good battle, and then he landed a nice 20" Slot Redfish.  Don Jr. put a hungry Flounder in the boat then Don Sr. added another Slot Red. Don Jr. seemed to have the
Seatrout's number, catching a good handful on a jig and mud minnow combo. As we fished a small creek, Don Sr. had a good hookup, a heavy weight, then ti began to fight. But Don was patient and after a good battle, landed  a nice 19.5" Flounder that put him in first place in the Anglers Mark 2015 Bragging Rights Tournament -Flounder category(scroll down right side of this report for standings). Boy what a fish! After fishing the area thoroughly, we headed around to Seymore's Pointe and fished some docks. The anglers picked up on small Red then we hit a flooded oyster bank over at Jackstaff and landed one more Seatrout to wrap the day up, another great one to be fishing Amelia Island waters.
