Michael had gotten in to the groove and was making excellent casts and when he felt a strange "bump" he set the hook and brought to the boat and big 18" Flounder. We worked along that edge, picked up a small Redfish or two, tangled with some Ladyfish, Jack Crevalle, and a Stingray, then moved on up the
Here, Tony went to the edge of a mud flat with a cast and BAM, another keeper sized Flounder in the boat. Michael was sticking right there with him, went to a drainage and he too brought another keeper Flounder to the box. The tide hit bottom and turned back in so we made the run over to Seymore's Pointe where we switched to jigs and shrimp, tossed up to some rocks. All three anglers put some Mangrove Snapper in the boat, with a couple of them being of keeper size. We then ran down to Broward Island and fished a nice drainage under the watchful eye of a couple of Bald Eagles. I think that was the only spot we didn't catch a fish!
After moving up the way and setting up parallel to the bank we stayed with the jigs and it paid off. Tony hooked up and landed a few nice 12" Mangrove Snapper. We also had a small Sheepshead and a couple of smaller Snapper. We then made the run back to Nassauville and fished between some docks. Here, the catching was fast and furious. Although it was a challenge to get those Mangrove's on a hook, they did it and added another good handful to the box, with Daniel, persevering, landing the last keeper. Tony had made a good cast up near rocks and BAM! He had a bump the minute it hit bottom. Tony set the hook and played to the boat a big 22.25" Flounder - a fish big enough to move him into third place in the Anglers Mark 2021 Bragging Rights Tournament-Flounder Category(scroll down the right side of this report for standings). I think we added one more keeper Flounder to make the total of six, then we headed in, counting it as another great day to be fishing with friends here at Amelia Island, Florida.
