We caught a Bunch

I fished again to day with Chris Sorah, his dad Ken, and his father-in-law Carroll. This time we met down at the Big Talbot Island Park boat ramp and headed up the Nassau River, running all the way to Broward Island to catch the last of the outgoing tide. This paid off as the anglers began to get bites right off. Ken hauled in a feisty Redfish, then another, then he picked up a hungry Seatrout. We had a another couple of small but fun to catch Trout then Chris had a strong hookup. He played the fish perfectly and landed a  nice
keeper sized 18" Seatrout. Then Ken followed that up with a fat Weakfish, which we haven't seen in a month or so. Already with a "Slam", Ken added to that with a Flounder. We then made the run back to the Horsehead area, fished Bubblegum Reef briefly, but had no real bites, then moved over to fish some docks at Seymore's Pointe. And boy it got hot here! Ken had a strong bite and a good battle with a nice sized Jack Crevalle then they were all catching fish (Carroll was taking in the scenery, enjoying the excellent weather, and providing moral support) and soon they began to pick up keeper sized Mangrove Snapper, one after the other. Ken hauled in a small but hard fighting Black "puppy" Drum to round out a Super Grande Slam! I may have missed a species but we had a good time, left 'em biting, and headed in, counting it as another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
