Flounder Kind of Day

I fished with the Struemph family, Ken and Lynn and their teenage anglers Brooke and Ross, meeting them at the Atlantic Seafood dock early and  making  our first run up and around to the Jolley River. The tide was still fairly high so they were tossing mud minnows under float rigs to the bank and letting it drift naturally along the shoreline. It wasn't long before all working hookup up. Ken "knocked the skunk off" when he landed a feisty Redfish then they were landing Reds and Seatrout and a Flounder now and then. Brooke put a keeper sized flounder in the boat and later Ken did
too. They tangles with a couple of Ladyfish and snagged a Snapper or two. We ran further up the Jolley, fished some now exposed oysters, and caught another couple of Reds and Trout and another keeper sized Flounder.  We made a short stop at the MOA (Mother of All) and Ross landed a couple of feisty Reds. Our last stop was around at Bell River, fishing the docks and the anglers wrapped the day up putting two more Redfish in the boat and a Snapper, and with that, we called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
