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.

Spring Fishing on Amelia Island Fl

Early spring the Black drum is moving in around the Jetties and rivers. The black Drum are the largest fish in the drum family, they can get to over one hundred pounds. The red drum is running this time of the years as well and get up to as big as 40 lbs.
The shrimp boats will start working in the spring as well and that means CHUM MACHINE lots of different fish coming up behind the boats to feed like this Black tip shark that’s over 100 lbs. The most exciting fishing time is in the spring, we sight fish for Cobia and Big jack Cralle’s using top water plugs and jigs. If you think a 4lb bass is awesome hitting a top water plug try a 60LBS cobia hitting a chug bug come get you some of that. This is a short time of the year to catch the fish on top water. The best time is April and May so Quit Wishin Let’s go Fishin!!! Book you trip to day

February on Amelia Island

This month we are still fishing in the Amelia River and the estuaries around Amelia. The trout are fired up and we are catching them on light tackle and fly rods too. The reds will be schooling up on the lower tides along the Amelia river banks in big numbers of schools. We are sight fishing for them. Fishing for the reds we are using Berkley Gulps and throwing them about three feet in front of the school and hooking up. This month is one of the best for Sheepshead, there are coming in to spawn along the beaches. We are fishing for them using Fiddler carbs along the jetty’s and docks. This month the weather is perfect for back water fishing with the low temps in the 40s and the highs in the 70s it’s a great way to enjoy Amelia Island for the day so Quit Wishin Let’s go Fishin!!!
