Squeez'n In a Fishing Trip
shrimp. It took a while but eventually both Betsy and Ryan hooked up and landed some nice fat Seatrout. Then, after Betsy had made an excellent cast to a small grass island, her float went under with a vengeance and, FISH ON! The drag was ripping and I saw a big Red boil up on the edge of grass but it was not to be, FISH OFF! Ouch! But it was a good battle while it lasted. We fished the area for a while, picked up another Trout or two, then moved over to fish another flooded bank. Ryan switched to a lighter jig rig and soon got the hang of hooking up fish. He landed a couple of Croaker, a Whiting and another Seatrout with the rig. We fished back at Seymore's Pointe, picked up a couple of more fish and then ended our day down at Broward Island where Ryan wrapped it up with one more Seatrout. The rain held off, we had a nice breeze, over cast skies and another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
