High Percentage of Keeper Sized Fish
way back into the pilings to break themselves off. Then Ron had a good hookup and after playing the fish patiently he soon landed another Slot sized Red. We fished the area thoroughly then made a run over to Tiger Island to fish the incoming tide. Again, Mary Beth had a good hookup. This fish was big but it was having none of coming to the boat - we never saw it as it stayed deep and eventually broke off. Then Mom had a good bite and after a good fight we landed a nice feisty Redfish. Robin was being patient and fishing out deep when she had a different kinda bite. She worked the fish in and we netted a keeper sized 17" Seatrout. After fishing the island up and down we made a short tour of Cumberland Island, Fort Clinch, and Old Town before heading in. Although we didn't catch a whole lot of fish, or percentage of "keeper sized" fish was pretty high and made for another great day to be fishing Amelia Island waters.
