Fishing Report from The Angler's Mark.  

These anglers travelled a long way to fish the back waters of Amelia Island! I met Russ Kessel who had his son Noah and friends Zach and Brayden up at the north end ramp and with just an hour and half of an incoming tide left, we headed over to the Jolley River and set up fishing the “bank” with float rigs and live shrimp, and minnows.  Although we didn’t have a whole lot of action, Noah did “knock the skunk off” with a seatrout catch.  After moving down way to the “stick” we had only been fishing for a bit when I heard Russ’s drag begin to rip..Big Fish On!  Luckily this fish went deep and as good as Russ was playing him, I felt confident that he was “in the net”. Sure enough, after some good, drag ripping runs, Noah netted his dad’s 26.5″ big Slot Redfish!

We came back and fished the outside of Tiger and had minimal bites at the first spot, but after crossing a creek things heated up pretty good. Noah and Brayden were fishing the bow and got into some hungry Seatrout then Noah put a nice 18″ Trout in the boat.  Zach got on the board with the first and only Flounder of the day catch.After re-supplying with bait (we burned thru the live shrimp with “baitstealers”, we ran up Lanceford Creek and fished the first of an outgoing tide at a marsh run out and it paid off. All four anglers were catching fish – we had some nice Trout, then some bigger Trout, then both Brayden and Zach tangled with some high flying Ladyfish. After one more spot where Noah boated a feisty Redfish, we called it a day, another great one for fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
