Football Sized Redfish

 I fished south again today, meeting William and Dara Blalock out at the Goffinville Park boat ramp.  If I had to sum up the day, it was a "Jack" of a day! As the sun was coming up there was a lady at the dock who shot some pictures of us leaving the dock, heading over to the Horsehead area. At the first stop we had an incoming tide so we went with float rigs and the live shrimp, working the bank, casting in to the current. If we'd only known what would be par for the day - Dara hooked up and landed Jack Crevalle.William picked up a small Manrgrove Snapper, then we landed another Jack. We did have a Redfish boil out ahead of us, but he had other plans. This happened a couple of times throughout the day.

We came back thru Horsehead and fished Twin Creeks for a bit, first with the floats, then with some jigs and shrimp, had nibbles, some bites, but no real takers. Back up the Nassau we went, to Pumpkin Hill and here we had a good flurry of Trout, Jacks, Ladyfish, and Mangroves. Moving around a bit,  Still on an incoming tide, William found a big Trout up near the grass, one that measured right at 18" (all fish caught today were released).

Back down the Nassau we went, and around to Seymore's Pointe where the tide had started out.. Dara was on the stern, William on the bow, and they both were getting quick takes. Dara finally outsmarted them and hooked up and landed two nice sized Mangrove Snapper. 

Up the Nassau we went, Hah! There was a spot I wanted to fish on an outgoing tide and when we got there it was high,and started to ease out. We fished it thoroughly and tangled with Jack, Ladyfish and Needlefish. I was beginning to wonder but then William caught and landed two feisty Redfish in quick succession. We worked back up the bank and Dara made a pin point cast to a "cut" and BAM! That drag began to sing and I sure was happy! Dara played it expertly, letting it run and rip that drag, then she worked it in as her favorite "net guy" dipped it up, a 24.5" "football shapped" Redfish, boy what a fish!

And with that, we called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
