MIxed Bag

I fished yesterday morning with the Stacey family, Arik and Libby and their son Adam. We made our first stop at Alligator Creek, fished an oyster lined bank and it didn't take long for Arik to put a nice Seatrout in the boat. When Adam had a strong bite we felt sure it was going to be a nice Redfish but it turned out to be a Sail Cat (fish). We ran around to fish some rocks at Seymore's Pointe, had a few bites, then Adam tangled with a high flying Ladyfish, the "poor man's Tarpon". We spotted a Redfish working the bank, tailing and
backing, as it cruised the rocks and marsh grass, but it wouldn't take what we were offering, which was mud minnows. Our last stop was down at Broward Island and here Adam's rod heated up here. He had a good hookup, played it patiently and landed a hungry Seatrout. Then he put a feisty Redfish in the boat then topped that one off with one bigger. We also had a keeper sized Flounder to the boat but it "self released". We had a good variety of fish and even picked up a blue crab as it swam by! With that, we called it  day, another great one to be fishing Amelia Island waters!
