Fishing Report from The Angler's Mark.
I fished with the Brison group this morning – Jared and his two kids Kira and Scott and Jared’s nephew Nate. We met down at the Sawpit Creek boat ramp and ran up the intercoastal to dip into Jackstaff with plans to fish the flooding oysters with float rigs and live shrimp on an incoming tide. The first stretch of bank didn’t produce much so we crossed over, went deeper into the marsh and right off, the anglers picked up some fish. Kira hooked up with a drag ripping fish and her and her dad teamed up to wrangle in a big Jack Crevalle. Scott followed that up with a high flying Ladyfish.
We ran thru Horsehead, made a pit stop at some docks, where Scott landed another Jack Crevalle, this one caught on a jig and shrimp down on the bottom. We bounced to another dock and here Kia put the first feisty Redfish in the boat. We fished Twin Creeks briefly then ran down to Pumpkin Hill and things got hot!
Jared battled probably the biggest Jack of the day, Scott landed a small Bonnethead Shark then cranked in a big Seatrout – almost
20″! Nate followed that up with a keeper sized Trout of his own (all fish were released today) then he had a big bite and Fish On! I had been calling the big fish bites “sharks” all day and they had turned out to be hard fighting Jacks. But this one turned out to be a big Bonnethead. Nate worked him to the boat patiently and we boated him for pictures and release.
We had some good action -everyone caught fish so we eased back to the boat ramp and counted it as another great day to be fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
