Within A Half An Inch

I fished with John Fitch and his daughter Annie today, meeting them up at the Old Town Bait and Tackle boat ramp early. We eased out of Eagans Creek and headed down the river to try and hit a spot before others got there!  We made it!  I set up alongside some structure and the duo began to toss jigs and live shrimp, letting it fall to the bottom, and then letting the current bounce it along the bottom. We hadn't been there long before we caught some feisty Redfish. But then BAM! a big bite and Fish On!  Annie was on the rod and she patiently worked it, keeping the rod bent and pressure on. She worked it to the surface and after a good battle landed a bulky 25" Slot Redfish, boy what a fish!  

We picked  up a few more Reds there, including a "barely legal" 18" Slot, then we moved on. Our next stop was fishing some dock pilings and even though these anglers were making excellent casts, we had no real bites. Same for the next stop - perfect outgoing tide, fishing some dock pilings, no bites.

After making a long run up to Bell River we again fished between two docks with the jig and shrimp and this made the run worth it. They began to catch Seatrout and landed a good handful of them. John hooked up an landed a keeper sized Sheepshead, then caught another smaller one. We picked up a few more trout, then moved on. 

Our last stop was around at Tyger, fishing the logs and I think it was first cast, we had a double hookup! Annie expertly reeled her's in, a feisty Red, but Johns was bigger. He fought it expertly and soon landed a 24.5" Slot Red, almost as big as Annie's. It was kinda crazy, but we fished for a good 30 minutes after that and didn't get a bite!  But as we headed back to the ramp we counted it as another great day to be fishing ere at Amelia Island, Florida.
