The Lucky Penny
After we came out we ran down to Seymore's Pointe and fished some marsh grass on the outgoing tide. Things really picked up - both anglers began to catch one Seatrout after another, drifting live shrimp under floats and then they landed a Red or two. William put a couple of keeper sized Trout in the boat then Cliff stepped up strong when he hooked up, battled patiently, and landed a Slot sized 21' Redfish. He followed that up with a keeper sized Black "puppy" Drum.
We fished a couple of spots at Spanish Drop but had no real bites so we cruised down to Broward Island and worked some logs with jigs and shrimp and found a couple of more Redfish.
The fishing was really good the first two hours of the falling tide, but after that, not so much. But it was a beautiful day to be out on the water so we counted it as another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida
