Fishing Report from The Angler's Mark.
I had the Pete Nolan group today and I fished with Tom, Eric and Dimas, meeting them all up at the Dee Dee Bartels Park. We made our run over to Lanceford Creek to fish some docks and we began to pitch jigs and shrimp up to the pilings. I was beginning to think that it was a tie between the gnats and “baitstealers” as to what was biting the most. Luckily these anglers hung in there and were able to catch a few fish – one a keeper sized Black “puppy” Drum, then a feisty Redfish, then a nice sized Grouper, believe it or not!When we tired of the gnats and baitstealers we ran back north and around to Tiger Island and spent the rest of the day there and it turned out pretty good. The trio put three more keeper sized Puppy Drum in the boat, a couple of more keeper sized Seatrout, and a nice 18″ Flounder to round out a good “mess ‘o fish”! When we ran short of bait we switched to jigs and plastic grubs and caught Trout. The two hottest colors were a silvery/glitter grub with a chartreuse paddle tail and then the age old red head/white twister tail.
Although we started slow we finished strong and it made for another great day of fishing here at Amelia Island, Florida.
