Three Slot Redfish BOOM!

Another beautiful morning greeted us today when I met Michael Huffer and his dad Ron down at the City marina. We had postponed the start time until 9am in order to catch the tide as it turned and started out. Our first stop was up Lanceford Creek to fish a flooded grass patch and even though we had a few bites, there were no takers. We fished a dock for a while and had "baitstealers" tease us then we headed over to Bell River and fished some flooded oysters. This did the trick - Michael found a hot spot and pulled three keeper sized Seatrout then his dad got in on the action and got
one too.  They caught a couple more small but hard fighting Trout then we ran on up the Bell to some docks. Ron and I fished out the stern at a dock system and had no real bites but Michael was tossing up current from the bow and found a couple of more Trout deep. We ran through the Jolley, stopped and fished some now exposed oysters, then made our final stop behind Tiger Island. Ron hauled in a feisty Redfish then Michael got real hot, landing three Slot Redfish in a row - all in the 23"-25" range. They added another couple of keeper sized Trout then we called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
