After working that bank we dropped down the river and fished Twin Creeks for a bit with float rigs and jigs, had some nibbles but no takers, then we made another run. This time we stopped down at the mouth of Pumpkin Hill and drifted floats along the shore line. Again, we had nibbles but no takers. I released the I-Pilot "anchor" and we drifted back, fishing as we went. Along one stretch of grass a big fish rolled at Steve's bait but didn't take it! We drifted back another 20 feet and then Steve's float disappeared with a vengeance and, Big Fish On1 Steve said at
We fished Broward Island briefly, then Christopher Creek then wrapped up fishing some docks at Nassauville, jig and shrimp on the bottom. The trio of anglers played cat and mouse with Mangrove Snapper. In short order both Sam and Doug were hooking up and put a couple of keeper sized fish on the boat ( I could tell that we are on our last week or so of having Mangroves in numbers here) then Steve had a strange bite, set the hook and slowly worked in a......big 'ole Flounder that measured at 19". Unfortunately for Steve we are 5 days into a closed season on Flounder so it had to be released, OUCH! He just couldn't catch a break! But as we headed in we knew we had had a beautiful day for fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
