Super Duper Amelia Island Back Country Grande Slam

 I fished south again today, meeting Bill Main down at the Sawpit Creek boat ramp @ 10:am, dead lowtide. We made the short run up to Seymore's Pointe and fished some dock pilings and made quick work of getting the "skunk" off when Bill hooked up, played perfectly and landed a feisty Redfish and nice keeper sized Black "puppy" Drum, back-to-back. 

We fished another dock or two then headed down to Broward Island and set up as the tide started in down there. Bill got into a school of small Sheepshead and he out-sneaked most of them, landing a good handful of 10" fish.   We moved down the way, passing under a pair of eagles and fished another drop and here Bill boated a Flounder and a Seatrout to give him a Super Grande Slam of back water fish here at Amelia Island. But Bill wasn't done yet!

We came back to Nassauville, still fishing with jigs and dead shrimp(no live stuff today, other than some minnows I had left over from yesterday -stay tuned-they paid off!) Bill had tossed

his bait up current and had good drifts a number of times and I was about to give up on the spot when, BAM! He had a hookup. the fish was giving a good pull and I was thinking "big Trout" and when it came to the surface I said, "yep", but I was wrong. It was an nice 17" Weadfish and now Bill had a Super Duper Grande Slam! Hah! We continued to fish and found some hard bottom where we were getting bites and sure enough, BOOM! Big Fish On!  Bill played it patiently and soon landed a nice 18" keeper sized Black Drum.

We left that area, fished some flooded shell bottoms along the Nassau with float rigs and those live minnows and after fishing a couple of areas we were just about to leave when Bill had his float disappear. He lifted his rod, took up the slack and let the circle hook set itself and he had another nice fish on. After working it to the boat we netted a nice 17" Flounder. We wrapped it up after that and counted it another Super Duper day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
