Fish Fight'n at Amelia Island

 The mornings are getting nicer - Fall is in the air! I met Stephen Googe and his son Graywolf up at the
Old Town Bait and Tackle shop this morning and we headed over to Tyger Island to try our luck fishing the "logs" on a tide that had been coming in for about 2 hours. We were pitching jigs and live shrimp, and a few minnows, up to the bank and fishing it slow. Both angles were getting "bumps" and finally Stephen had a strong one, hooked it up, and landed a hungry Seatrout. Just minutes later Graywolf got in on the action and expertly set the hook on a fish and then worked it to the net, a nice Croaker!

We ran around to the outside of Tyger and fished a large drainage. We could see Mullet getting busted and it wasn't Stephens 2nd or 3rd cast when, Big Fish On!  Stephen worked it to the boat patiently, let it "dig" deep a few times, worked it up, and brought to the net a Big 21" Flounder, boy what a fish. We then worked back into the current and it was Graywolf's turn to fight a Flounder. He got a nice one all the way to the boat but then, BAP! The leader broke. Ouch!  Minutes later Stephen had a good thump, set the hook, and brought to the boat a feisty Redfish.


After moving around to Jolley Bank, we switched to float rigs as the tide was already covering the oysters. Again, we had dozens of "bait stealing" bites but when we got to a point we hovered with the Minnkota and got a few drifts in. Stephen hooked up and landed another feisty Redfish, and a small Jack, then he had a strong hookup and this one was pulling drag! Stephen played it expertly and eventually landed a nice 21" Slot sized Redfish.

We then ran up the river to see if we could get Graywolf a Shark. After pulling into "Snook" Creek we switched back to jigs. They caught a couple of small Croaker, a small Seatrout, then they had two drag ripping battles with Sharks, but alas, the Sharks won!

Our final stop was back down the Jolley, fishing a pointe and it was a Grand Finale! They teamed up on a couple of small Seatrout, a couple of Ladyfish, a big Jack, and a Huge Seatrout that was at the boat before it threw the hook and swam off. I could almost hear it laughing at us! Hah! But we had had some good action and the weather was perfect so as we headed back to the ramp we counted it as another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
