Steady Catch'n


I kicked off the week fishing with David Vice and his friends Robert and Henrietta, meeting them out at the Goffinsville Park boat ramp at sun  up. We made a quick run over to the Back River and set up to fish float rigs with mud minnows on a tide that had been going out for a couple of hours. It was only minutes when they began to get bites. David started it off with Seatrout, catching one after the other. Robert followed that up with some feisty Redfish catches then they were all catching fish. Redfish, Seatrout, Redfish, Redfish, Seatrout. Henrietta was on the stern and picked up a couple of her own.

We the ran down the Nassau and fished Spanish Drop, sticking with the float rigs and tangled with some Ladyfish, then moved up to a large drainage and caught more Redfish, more Seatrout, and Henrietta hooked and landed a keeper sized Flounder (released due to the closed season). We fished a dock later and caught a couple of Mangrove Snapper, a Whiting and a small Sea Bass. 

After fishing another dock where we caught a couple of more Mangroves, we made our way down to Broward Island on the last of the outgoing tide, but the wind had kicked up, and the bite fell off so we headed back to the ramp and counted it as another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
