Catch'n a Mess at Amelia Island
All four anglers were tossing live shrimp on a jig to the exposed bank on the last of an outgoing tide. Although we had one good hookup, it shook the hook and that was it. We crossed over the creek and fished a point and this did the trick. Clay "knocked the skunk off" when he found a fat and hungry Seatrout. Minutes later, he picked up another one. After one or two more bites, we moved on.
We jumped down the river and began to fish float rigs up at some structure and all joined in catching Mangrove Snapper. Just like yesterday, they started small then got bigger and into the "keeper" sized range. All four anglers put keeper sized fish in the boat. Before the day was over, we had a good "mess" of fish and counted it as another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
