We ran out and around to the outside of Tiger, set up at a marsh run out, and here Joe got on the board with a couple of Seatrout catches - giving the trio an Amelia Island Back Country Slam.
We fished the "bank" of the Jolley briefly with float rigs but after Grayson mentioned that he'd like a Shark catch, we went further up in to the Jolley and into Snook Creek. I put a heavier leader on one of the Shimano 2500 outfit and in a short time Grayson had the hookup he was looking for. He played the big fish patiently and
after a good battle, landed a 4'+ Bonnethead which we photographed and released. Paul put a nice Redfish in the boat shortly after that.
Our next stop was back around at the Bell River and here Joe got hot with the float rig, catching a handful of hungry Seatrout. Grayson stuck with the jig rod up on the bow, tossing deep and picked up a couple of Weakfish which made my day. We had good action most of the morning and it made for a great birthday celebration fishing trip here at Amelia Island, Florida.
