We worked Jolley "bank" slowly, tossing to the marsh grass and got numerous "bait stealing" bites. After working the whole bank I was beginning to wonder when Thomas had a hookup and landed a hungry Seatrout to "knock the skunk off". Not a minute later, David had his float disappear and, Fish On! This fish was ripping some drag so we knew it wasn't a baitstealer - David kept the pressure on and worked the fish to the boat and landed a nice 22" Slot Redfish.
After running further up the Jolley we made a stop and fished another likely bank - there was a bunch of bait moving around - and both anglers were making excellent casts - and BOOM! Big fish on. This fish wasn't have none of coming to the boat and stayed up near the shore, I'm sure trying to dislodge the hook in the oysters. But David kept the pressure on, played it patiently and soon landed a big 24" Slot fish, one that had 16 Spots! A sure money winner if caught in the Amelia Island Guides Association Redfish Spot Tournament.
The tide was getting up so we began to snoop around for some tailing Redfish. At our second spot we did see some big wakes and backs out of the water and tossed some weedless Gator Spoons at 'em, but had no takers. We bounced around to another 2-3 spots but saw no tails, so we headed in and counted it as another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
