Remember When Someone Took YOU Fishing?

 Today Frontis Clark treated his 6yo granddaughter Briele to an Amelia Island backcountry fishing trip, and she brought along her own gear! We met out at Goffinsville Park boat ramp and made our way over to the Spanish Drop area of the Nassau River where we put out two Crab traps, baited with some Pogeys. Then we moved down the way and began fishing a large drainage with jigs and live shrimp. We picked up a nice Flounder right off, then a Jack Crevalle, and tangled with some high flying Ladyfish.

We moved back up the river and fished another drainage and drug in some "oyster fish" and another Jack before we headed over to some docks and pitched the pilings. Here, both Frontis and Briele hooked up and expertly landed some fairly nice sized Mangrove Snapper. We came around the corner and played cat and mouse with some bait stealers then we decided to go check our traps!

The first trap we checked "Trap 2) was absolutely loaded with Conch shells and their guests - some Hermit Crabs! There were probably 20 of them in the trap!  Then,. we moved up to the next trap (Trap 1) and eased it in. It was neat to see that in that short amount of time we had three huge Blue Crab caught.

We had introduced Briele to some bait -live shrimp and minnows and Pogeys, seen some wildlife-Roseate Spoonbills, Cranes, Egrets and Oyster Catchers and Porpoise, and we had caught some fish and Crabs so as we headed back we counted it as another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
