Fishing Report from The Angler's Mark.
I fished with the Richardson’s today, Mark and his dad Allen and son Brayden, meeting them up at the Dee Dee Bartels Park boat ramp and boy was it foggy! But not so much that we couldn’t cruise to our first spot with 100 yards of visibility. After we set up in Lanceford Creek at a large marsh run out and baited our float rigs with live shrimp, the anglers made their casts and BOOM! Seatrout on! From then in on it was like Gangbusters, fish after fish after fish caught. Most of the Trout were undersized but they put 3-4 fat keeper sized fish in the boat, too. (All fish caught today were
released). As we worked along the bank this trio of anglers picked up a couple of feisty Redfish, had a big one break off in the oysters, and made an hour and a half of fish catching fun!Before we left the area we fished some dock pilings in Lanceford to no avail, then made the long run up the Bell River to some more docks. Mark caught another feisty Redfish and Brayden put another keeper sized Trout in the boat – both fishing with jigs and mud minnows.
Our final stop was around at Tiger Island, fishing the tree tops. Allen hauled in a couple of nice Reds, we added a small Black “puppy drum” and then a small Flounder to round out an Amelia Island Back Country Grande Slam of Seatrout, Red Drum, Black Drum and Flounder, making for a another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
