It didn’t take but about 15 minutes and we were fishing. Keith was getting good casts and good drifts and when his float shot under with a vengeance, Keith set the hook and, FISH ON! This was a big fish! Keith played it patiently and let the big fish run, even as it made a dash under the boat. We were both thinking “big Red” at first, but then I saw a yellow-white flash….and Keith soon subdued a big hard fighting Jack Crevalle – the first of the year. But we had no Trout so we moved on.
Bouncing around the corner, we set up with floats along the bank and Keith continued his hot streak. He landed one keeper sized Slot Redfish and a whole handful of others that were just a hair undersized. It made for a great way to finish another day of fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
