Fishing Report from The Angler's Mark.
After fishing a windy morning trip Friday – a day that had some pretty stiff winds and a super high and incoming tide, and a day that garnered just a handful of Trout – I went out again in the afternoon with Howard Mclure and his friends Kirk and Pete, this time fishing a tide that had been going out for a couple of hours.
We made our first run up to the Jolley River and fished an exact bank that produce nothing on that higher tide. These anglers were tossing live shrimp under floats and making excellent casts to the
bank and getting great drifts over the submerged oysters. Pete got hot early and put 2-3 Redfish in the boat with one of them being in the Slot size – a keeper! Then Kirk found his groove and he too began to get fish, but his were nice, keeper sized Black “puppy” Drum. The trio put a good handful of Blacks and Reds in the boat, keeping me busy for a good while. We worked that bank over good then moved back to the mouth of Jolley and fished it too.
Our last stop was back at Tiger Island, fishing the logs on the very
last of an the outgoing tide and had good bites. We picked up a handful of feisty Redfish then we had strong bite. Howard worked it in patiently and landed one of the bigger Black Drum’s of the day. And with that, we called it a day, another great one to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
