Fishing Report from The Angler's Mark.
That’s what Joy Hasting’s had asked last night as we finalized the details of us meeting this morning for a fishing trip. And boy were they! Joy was celebrating her birthday with husband Steve, her brother Bob and his wife Cindy. I met them out at the Goffinsville Park boat ramp and we headed back down the Nassau to find a strip of exposed oysters. When the Ladyfish began to hit I was thinking we may need to move but then these excellent anglers began to hookup with Redfish, Seatrout, Flounder and Jacks. I rarely stay at one spot for more than 30 minutes but the fish were biting so why move? We tallied a couple of keeper sized Flounder and a keeper
sized Seatrout.Eventually we did ease up the river and fish a runout, caught a few fish, then we headed down to Broward Island to finish the outgoing tide. We had good hookups, with Cindy putting a nice Slot Redfish in the boat. But it sure was getting hot! We made a run to cool off and stopped at Seymore’s Pointe and tangled with some Mangrove Snapper, a few which were keeper sized.
Our final stop was back down the Nassau at Spanish Drop, now fishing an incoming tide, and the move paid off! Cindy added another Slot Redfish and the biggest Flounder of he day! All five of us were melting and with a nice bag of fish in the box, we headed in, counting it as another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
