Fishing With The Eagles

I went back south today, meeting Paul Genn and his fishing partner James down at the Goffinsville Park boat ramp. The tide still had about 30 minutes of going out so we eased just a bit down the river and set up between two docks to pitch jigs and live shrimp up current, letting it fall down the river bottom. Although the bite wasn't "on fire", James did pick up a nice keeper sized Seatrout.

The tide was coming to a standstill so we moved around the corner, fished some more dock pilings and here Paul battled and landed a keeper sized 17" Black "puppy" Drum. We fished the docks for a bit and it was James who found a Slot sized 20" Redfish.

Our next stop was down at Broward Island. We fished a couple of areas to no avail then moved down to fish a large marsh run out and this did the trick. We could see something big busting bait - James pulled out a couple of 14" Sheepshead, and Paul landed a couple, too. Then, after an excellent cast to the 'sweet" spot, BOOM! Big Fish On!  James was on the reel and kept the pressure on, and the battle ensued. The big fish rolled a time or two up shallow then got out into deeper water and dug down. But James played it perfectly and soon landed a fat 25" Slot Redfish - boy what a pretty fish. He also put a 9 spot Red in the boat, just slightly undersized.

We worked along that stretch for a while, then moved on up the river to Pumpkin Hill and fished some marsh grass with floats, then called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
