Wakeup Call

 We had a pretty morning today when I meet Steve Carbonneau and his buddy Sean down at the Sawpit Creek boat ramp. We made the run up the intercoastal and dipped in to Jackstaff to fish a large marsh run  out with float rigs just as the tide peaked at its highest. The duo of anglers had only been fishing for just a bit when we had a wakeup call!  Steve's float disappeared, his drag began to rip, and Big Fish On! This fish just kept going! It headed for the stern the it went from port to starboard, but Steve followed it right around, ducking under Sean's rod, then kept the pressure on until he brought it to the boat, a nice sized Jack Crevalle.

We crossed the creek, worked the bank, and picked up a couple of hungry Seatrout, then we ran thru Horsehead and fished an ambush pointe. Sean got on

the board and landed another Seatrout. After fishing Spanish Drop for a while, then Nassauvile rocks where we picked up a keeper sized Trout, we came back to some docks at Seymore's and here Sean hooked up and landed keeper sized Black "puppy" Drum. 

Our next stop was down at Broward Island, still fishing and outgoing tide. The rising wind was blocked just a tad but it was blocked here but unfortunately the fish didn't get the message and refused to bite. After fishing back at Nassauville  rocks one more time where we got a small Weakfish, then we called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
