Slot Reds Top The Trip
while we had a strong bite and FISH ON! Vince fought the big fish patiently and after a good battle with multiple deep runs, he landed a nice, barely legal, 26 7/8" Slot Redfish! Boy what a fish. A little later Vince followed that up with a keeper sized Flounder. Not to be outdone, David got in the action and put a Slot Red in the boat along with another keeper sized Flounder. They picked up a few small Seatrout and another Flounder before we headed up to the Jolley River to fish the exposed oyster beds. After just a short time, David had another strong bite! When it rolled up near the bank I knew that it was a big Redfish. The big fish made some strong runs up and down the bank then went deep and into the current. But David kept he pressure on and landed a nice 23" Slot Red. Although we had a few nibbles after that, there were no real bites (other than 'baitstealers") so we went back to Tiger to fish the incoming tide. They picked up a another Red, another Trout, and another Flounder. Our last stop was up in Eagans Creek and we finished the day catching small but aggressive Seatrout. With that, we called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
