Quality and Quantity

Fishing the back waters of Amelia Island is always fun because you never know what's on the other end of the line! Today, fishing with Bob and Nancy Stein, we had nine different varieties of fish caught. Redfish, Seatrout, Flounder (a Slam), Mangrove Snapper, Jack Crevalle, Stingray, Bonnethead Shark, Croaker, and Pinfish were caught on live shrimp. We met down at the Sawpit Creek boat ramp and headed up the Nassau River, making a quick stop to fish some exposed oysters with jigs. Bob "knocked the skunk off" when he landed a couple of feisty Redfish. We jumped down to Twin Creeks
and both anglers began to hookup with fish. Nancy put a keeper sized Seatrout in the boat and Bob followed that up with one of his on. Then Nancy landed a hungry Stingray and then a feisty Bonnethead Shark. We moved back east in the river and they caught a couple of more smaller trout, then Nancy had a strong bite and FISH ON! She worked the fish patiently to the boat and landed a nice Slot sized Redfish. Somewhere in there she also caught a hard fighting Jack Crevalle and they both landed a couple of more smaller Reds.  We ran up to some docks and fished the pilings and Bob got hot catching small Mangrove Snapper and a couple of Pinfish. We ran down to Christopher Creek on the last of an incoming tide, fished the rocks and Bob wrapped thing up with a Slot Redfish of his own, then topped it off with a small but hungry Flounder. With that, we called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
