The Girls First Fish

We've had excellent weather this week and that included today -just a few clouds, a slight breeze and balmy temperatures. I had met Tripp Miller, his fiancé Carla and his daughters Kaylee and Lila down at the City marina and we headed up to Eagans Creek to fish the first of an incoming tide with jigs and live shrimp and mud minnows. It didn't take long for Kaylee to "knock the skunk off" when she landed a nice Seatrout. From then on it was some steady fish catching. Carla was taking pictures as the other three anglers boated fish. Both Tripp and Kaylee put Slot Redfish in the boat
with three of them measuring at 23", 22" and 22" with a total of 5 Slot Reds caught along with a good handful of smaller ones. Lila seemed to have the hot hand at catching Seatrout with her "down, up" fishing technique and she put at least three of them in the boat. We fished over at Tiger Island and although things were slower, Tripp hooked up with a big Redfish and landed it with ease - another Slot sized 25" Redfish, the biggest of the day! We toured Cumberland Island and saw a large herd of horses, eased by Fort Clinch and wrapped up the trip at Old Town to make it another great day of fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
