Sunset Red-Fishing

My guests this afternoon, Mary Haskell and her nephew Bryan, were coming in from the airport and to save time, we met out at Goffinsville Park with plans to get in a late afternoon fishing trip. We had a high and outgoing tide so I made the run around and through Jackstaff to fish a still flooded oyster bank. I think it was one of Mary's first casts and she had a Trout hookup to "knock the skunk off" the boat. We fished the entire bank with shrimp and jigs and found one spot where some feisty Redfish were holding. Both Mary and Brian put a handful of these hard fighting fish in the
boat and once they had a double hookup and catch. Our next stop was back around at Seymore's Pointe and here it seemed the baitstealers had set up house. As  the sun was setting we made our way down to Broward Island and just as we thought the baitstealers had a second home, Bryan had a strong hookup and FISH ON! He played the big fish perfectly and even though it made its way back into the current, he took his time and eventually landed a nice 23" Slot Redfish. We fished a while longer but it got so dark we could no longer see the bank, so we called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
