Girls Just Want To Have Fun

We had a great morning forecast today so I met the Fields family, Bob and Amy along with their two daughters Page and Clare, down at the south end boat ramp with plans to fish the first of an incoming tide. We ran up the Nassau River and made our first stop at Bubblegum Reef. We had two anglers on the bow and two at the stern tossing live shrimp and jig combo's to the river bottom and dragging them slowly back. Our first bite was a slight "bump" then FISH ON! Page had the rod and she worked the big fish patiently to the boat and soon landed a nice 17" Sheepshead. We fished until
the structure covered then moved over to fish some docks at Seymore's Pointe. All the anglers were making good casts to the dock pilings and when Page yelled, "I've got a fish", we could tell it was a good one by the way her rod was bent. She fought the fish furiously and landed another 17" fish, this one a fat Flounder. The wind had picked up and was rocking us pretty good so we ran down to Broward Island and it was like fishing on a pond! We had another slight bump and young Clare got on the board when she worked in a hungry Flounder. Bob was fishing  patiently and persistently and he found a few Seatrout to add to the catch then Amy wrapped it up with a nice keeper sized Sheepshead round out another great day to be fishing Amelia Island waters.
