Win Some Lose Some

We had  a beautiful morning today when I met Bob Miller and his brother Dan down at the Sawpit Creek boat ramp. The tide was high here and just starting out but when we reached our first spot after a 10 minute run, it was still at a standstill. We fished float rigs baited with live Shrimp and the two anglers almost immediately began to get bites. There were a lot of "bait stealers" to work thru, and I don't know if we've caught so many Ladyfish, but this duo persevered and got some nice fish. 

Dan "knocked" the (real) skunk off with a nice keeper sized Seatrout catch then Bob tangled with a drag ripping Redfish, one that he out fought and landed - a 22" bulky Slot Redfish. They caught and landed and tossed those Ladyfish then Dan put another keeper sized Seatrout in the boat.  As we were wrapping this spot up Bob had a huge hookup after drifting long and put up a good battle, but this big fish was not to be had and with a quick turn, BAP! The line parted.

We fished Twin Creeks for a bit and here we had our second line parting - Dan had hooked up with a big Bonnethead Shark and fought it expertly. I did get a hand on the fin but was out of position so Dan fought it a bit more until it too decided to part ways with we lowly anglers. Bob did battle a nice sized Jack Crevalle to the net.

Our final stop was over at some docks at Nassauville where they played cat and mouse with the Mangrove Snapper. Most of them were undersized but they did manage 4 keepers, two of which were probably the biggest I've had all summer.  And with that, we called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
