Kicking Off March at Amelia Island
Although the conditions and tide were great, we didn't have the action that I was hoping for so we ran back to Seymore's Pointe, fished some rocks, then moved around to fish a dock. Again, the conditions were great as we fished the first of an incoming tide, but the bite was kinda slow until Russ hooked up with a hard fighting fish. He played it perfectly and soon landed keeper sized Black "puppy" Drum. We fished another dock, picked up a feisty Redfish (giving the duo an Amelia Island Back Country Grande Slam) then Russ had strong bite and FISH ON! He fought the fish expertly and after a good battle landed a Slot sized Redfish. We ran through Horsehead, fished the mouth of Jackstaff and found a good handful of Seatrout. Our last stop was back at Christopher Creek and we found one spot where the anglers landed 5-6 feisty Redfish which made for a great way to wrap up a good day of fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
