Two Casts Two Fish

I started my week fishing with John Kenny this morning, meeting down at the Big Talbot Island Park boat ramp and making the run up the Amelia River to slip into Jackstaff and fish the "bank" with float rigs and live shrimp on the first of an outgoing tide. Our first cast to the marsh line produced a strong bite and, FISH ON! John played the fish perfectly and soon landed a nice Slot sized Redfish (all fish caught were released today). He baited up again, made a cast and when the float went under we knew he had another fish - a nice feisty Redfish this time. Now that's a great start! We fished the bank in it's entirety and picked up a couple of more Reds then ran around to Seymore's Pointe and fished some docks. Here John picked up a big Croaker and a keeper sized Mangrove Snapper in quick succession.  There were fish busting bait everywhere and we even tried some live finger muillet but they wouldn't take our offering so we ran down to Broward Island and fished some logs. John picked up one more Redfish, this one on a jig and shrimp, then we headed in, counting it as another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
