Not Big But a Grande Slam

Another beautiful morning was predicted today when I met Doug Mackle and his longtime friend Kenny up at the Dee Dee Bartels boat ramp. We shot across to Tiger and fished the logs and for the second day in a row, no real bites. We came out to the outside and fished the flooded oysters and here Kenny picked up a hungry Seatrout on a float rig.

We fished some oysters at Bell River with no luck then ran over to Lanceford Creek to get out of the increasing wind and here Kenny landed a Black Drum, Doug added a small Flounder, then Kenny hauled in a nice 20" Slot sized Redfish to
make it an Amelia Island Grand Slam. We fished further up Lanceford, tried Soap Creek (somewhere in there we got another Trout or two) and then ended up fishing Egans Creek on the first of an outgoing tide. Although we didn't get a whole lot of fish, we got a handful and while fishing with long time friends, you can always count it as a great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
