Full fishing on Amelia Island


The backwater is great for Red fish  on light tackle. The Jack Carville are running with the mullet run. The trout are moving in the rivers with the cooler water temperature and are biting jigs and doing well on the fly rod too.

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 the bottom fishing is great when the weather lets you go, the Seabass are in on the near shore reefs and the grouper are too. Lots of snapper around but you have to release them. We have half days available for the up coming holidays so call or email today to book your fishing Trip.

October fishing on Amelia Island

The bull reds are making their annual migration in to the beaches and the rivers. We are catching and releasing the bull reds up to 50lbs.  For anglers to catch a fish of this size is a blast the smile on their face say it all. For the next four to five weeks the reds will be inshore feeding and spawning like the salmon but don’t die. We are catching some Black tip sharks like the one Shawn is holding 145lbs. the slot reds are in and we are catching puppy drum too.

The back water is starting to turn on with the cooler temperature. The trout are chewing and the reds on light tackle and it will get better as the water cools down. So Quit Wishin Let’s go Fishin!!!
