Flounder Catches

Today was rather warm out on the water and after a slow last few days I was hoping for some better action. I met Marnie and Brian Bird down at the south end boat ramp this morning and we headed up the Nassau River and all the way around to Broward Island to catch a tide that had been coming in for a couple of hours. The two anglers were tossing jigs and live shrimp up current and slowly retrieving them. The first area produced no bites but when we re-positioned around some logs they had a flurry of Trout catches -
Marnie started it off with a couple then Brian added one of his own. We worked up and down, then moved further up the island and after a strange bite we had a hookup. Marnie worked it patiently to the boat and we netted a nice keeper sized Flounder. Then Brian had a good bite and landed a  keeper sized Seatrout. We eventually ran back to Seymore's Pointe, fished some docks, and even though the conditions were right, we had no real bites. We backtracked to Christopher Creek fished some  structure, and Brian found another nice, keeper sized Flounder. Then he wrapped up an Amelia Island Backcountry Slam when he landed a nice Redfish that was right at Slot size. With that, we called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
