We had another sunny day today with clear skies, but somewhat cooler. I had met Kyle and Racquel Rausch down at the Big Talbot Island Park boat ramp early and with temperatures in the low 40's we were all bundled up and ready to go. We made the first run straight up the Nassau River, picked a dock to fish at Seymore's Pointe and worked the pilings on the very last of an outgoing tide...and had no real bites. We moved to the other side of the dock, fished it for a while...and had no real bites. Ouch! After a run through Horsehead we fished an exposed oyster bank thoroughly
with both anglers making excellent casts to the bank and again, no real bites! What's with this? The wind was picking up and I could see a good chop building out in Amelia River so we ran back through Horsehead and found a sheltered spot to fish the rocks along Seymore's Pointe. I think it was Kyle's first cast, an excellent one right up to the rocks, and BOOM! Fish on! He played the fish perfectly and after nice battle landed feisty Redfish to knock the "skunk" off the boat. I think I was happier than he was! But we had no more fish after that. We fished Broward Island briefly but the north wind was kicking our butts so we went over to Christopher Creek where I barely made through the mouth. This time Kyle found a Redfish down deep and boated it with ease. He had a couple of more good bites, some drag ripped, but the fish threw the hook and after really working the area good, we called it a day, another great one to be out on the water at Amelia Island, Florida.
