Winter fishing off shore is great when the weather lets you go. The sheepshead will be chewing on the reefs along with the seabass and both are great table food. Catching a 8lb sheepshead in 60ft of water is a Read More
Jetty the Bull reds are still chewing and are awesome on light tackle. The sheepsheads are coming in the rivers and at the jetty’s too.

Offshore Sport Fishing is great early fall, the bottom fishing for snapper and grouper is fired up. While bottom fishing you my encounter a nice Cobia following up your sea bass or grouper and we will have a jig ready Read More
The backwater fishing is at its best in the winter time on Amelia Is. With the cooler water temperature in the middle 50’s degrees the red fish group up in to schools of thirty to forty fish in a school. When this takes place you can sight fish for them with light tackle or with fly rods. The trout are schooled up as well along the rivers on the drop offs from 3 to six feet of water and you can fish for them with light tackle or fly rod as well. The sheepshead are the most challenging fish of all to catch, we fish for them along the jetty’s and docks, you will be using fiddler crabs and shrimp on light tackle and when you hook up its like fighting a 20lb snapper on light tackle your forearms will burn. This fishing is the best for the next few months.
The offshore is good when the weather will let you get offshore. The seabass are fired up and the trigger are too. And this time of the year you might see the Wright whales are in the offshore waters. So Quit Wishin Let’s go fishin!!!
Fall fishing on Amelia Island is at its best with the fall run of Bull red bass. The bass are running up to 30 to 50lbs. they are moving in the river and jetty s area to spawn in the fall. You can catch two at a time like Drew and Dad have. We have had multiple hook ups and one hooked up as well.
We are also catching in the backwater lady fish like the one Breanna is holding. On light tackle this fishing is awesome. The trout are running along with the smaller reds. The sharks are chewing like the one Travis is holding (nurse shark) and the Atlantic sharp nose and lots more so, Quit Wishin lt’s go Fishin <
Fishing here on Amelia in September is awesome near shore at the jetties or back water. At the jetty’s the bull reds are moving in like the double header Jeff and Chris are holding. The sharks are chewing and the Tarpon are feeding along the jetty rocks to.
In the backwater the flounder like the one Joe is holding are moving in and feeding on the mullet run. The trout and reds are feeding on them too. The late summer months September and October are the best time to fish and hang out on Amelia Island. The fishing is fired up and the weather is nice and cool 60s at night high 80s in the day so Quit Wishin Let’s go Fishin!!
The offshore fishing has been great when the weather lets us get offshore. We are bottom fishing and catching some nice gag grouper like the one Tom is holding and are catching sea bass and trigger fish too. On the flat line we have been landing lots of Cobia like the one Maggie is hold with her father John. Here is Mark and son Hunter holding up there tag team cobia too. The water is cooler then normal with all the south west winds and this has the cobia moved back in on the structure. We land this double header that Andrew and Jack are holding up. The cudas are chewing like this one that Mat caught 45lbs. Fishing behind the shrimps we are catching the big Black tip sharks like this one Ryan and Ally caught. The cobia and the tarpon are running along the jetties and boats as well. Quit Wishin Let’s go Fishin!!!
May is here and this is THE most exciting time to sight fish near shore on the beaches. The cobia is moving in and up the beaches feeding on the pogy’s and crabs. Cruising from the tower you can see the cobia and red fish from a long ways out and this give you the angler time for me to show you where to cast. You will see the fish before you make your cast, it’s like deer hunting. There have been times when we can get three on at a time and land all three. The reds will school and feed on the pogy’s as well and you can hook up multiple like the ones the Navy boys are holding.
In early spring the shrimp boats are working offshore about three to five miles and throw there by catch over and it attacks all kinds of fish and sharks like this one hundred and fifty pounder we are holding on the gunnel.
The grouper season open on May first and the sea bass open on June first. Offshore we will be catching grouper and the cobia you can catch on the wrecks and rock piles too. the kingfish should be moving to the near shore reefs and while bottom fishing we will have a flat line out for them. So Quit Wishin Let’s go Fishin!!!
The reds have moved in to the jetties and are fired up. We landed this triple header at the jetties and had over ten for the trip plus lots of sharks. The reds will move to the pogy pods as soon as the pogy’s move to the beaches and with the water warming up fast it should be any day. This is the most exciting fishing I think we have to offer this time of the year. We will also be sight fishing for cobia like the one Travis is holding and the jacks will be here soon too. We are still catching the black drum at the jetties and the sharks are here. The near shore is wear the action is and this is great for the whole family. So Quit Wishin Let’s go Fishin!!!
