Flounder Action

I fished today with the Kilborn family, Bill and Shannon and their two young anglers William and Kaitlyn. We met down at the Sawpit Creek boat ramp early this morning and headed north up the Amelia River, easing in to Jackstaff to fish the last hour or so of an outgoing tide. Just like Monday, the demo cast picked up a fish, this time a nice hungry Seatrout that Kaitlyn reeled in. We fished the entire bank, tossing mud minnows and dead shrimp on jigs up to the exposed bank and later had a funky bite, a hookup, and William
worked in a keeper sized Flounder. We fished the area thoroughly, saw some Bonnetheads, but they wouldn't bite, then ran around and down to Broward Island. The tide was still going out here as we fished the deeper water. Then Bill had a hookup and he too landed a keeper sized Flounder. Our last stop was back at some docks at Seymore's Pointe and although we had few bites, we had no takers. We saw a ton of bird life - Egrets, Cranes, Osprey and Rosette Spoonbills which made for another great day to be out on Amelia Island waters.
