Fog Makes it Difficult to Get Started

 We had a fog that blanketed Amelia Island this morning and when I met Joseph Mahoney, his dad Norm, and nephew Mike up at the Old Town Bait and Tackle boat ramp, we had to ease out of Eagans and down the Amelia River to make it to our first spot. Joe was up front, on the cooler, braving the cooler wind and keeping a second set of eyes out for crab pots, channel markers and anchored boats. We made it safely to that first spot and began to fish some dock pilings with jigs and shrimp and I felt sure we would get some fish. We did not. All we had were nibbles and nibbles and nibbles from "bait stealers". 


We then slowly made our way back north and around to Tyger Island where we set up to fish the first of an incoming tide. Mike "knocked the skunk off" with a keeper sized Seatrout catch, but that was it until we moved down the way and evidently the switch flipped. It was fast and furious fishing for a while. Both Mike and Norm put feisty Redfish in the boat - at one time we had a "double" hookup and at one time we had a "triple hookup" when Joe hooked up. They added a couple of smaller Black "puppy" Drum to the catch then Mike had a strong hookup and, Fish On! He played it perfectly, battled it patiently, and soon landed a big 26" Slot Redfish, boy what a fish! Norm added a keeper sized 15" drum to the box.

After running up to the Jolley we fished the MOA with the oysters still showing, had no luck, then continued around to Bell River and fished some docks. Joe outsmarted and landed a Sheepshead, and keeping with the "striped fish" theme, caught and landed a Puppy Drum. The trio added another feisty Red to the catch and another keeper sized Seatrout. 

The fog had lifted and we were able to make the long run back to the ramp and as we eased down Eagans we counted it as another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
