Big Brother Fishing

The Nassau Sports Fishing Association hosted a group of Big Brothers/Big Sisters today and the Anglers Mark was one of the boats that took a few of the groups fishing. We all met at the Amelia Island Marina and got paired up with our anglers - I had Larry and Larrie along with their young Brothers Richard and Daniel respectively. We eased out of the marina and headed south, thru Horsehead and all the way down to Pumpkin Hill to fish some flooded oyster beds on the very first of an incoming tide. Young
Richard "knocked the skunk off" when he landed a nice keeper sized Seatrout. Daniel followed it up with a Trout of his own. Young guys 2. Older guys 0.  But we continued to fish and after a while all the anglers had put Trout in the boat. Richard added another keeper before we headed back into the Nassau River and fished a couple of nice marsh runouts, but to no avail. We then fished some docks at Seymore's Pointe then made our final stop over at the mouth of Jackstaff where Daniel wrapped things up with a keeper sized Flounder. With that, we called it a day and headed back to the Marina for some hotdogs and burgers making it a great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
