Amelia Island Fishing Report 11-2 2011

Amelia Island Fishing Report
November 2011

Hello Anglers!

Great weather and great fishing here on Amelia Island! Plan to squeeze in that Father/son fishing trip or line up a trip to get out with your buddies or spouse before the winter cold blows in! Visit the Amelia Island Fishing News during the month for up-to-date fishing news. Get away from it all, book a trip, and Let's Go Fishing on The Angler's Mark!

October Report/November Forecast:

Seatrout catches are coming on strong and seems like there are more in the "keeper" sized range, too! We're fishing live shrimp and artificials on jig heads and both baits are running neck and neck in the catching category. Most trips produced Slot Sized Redfish and 16-20" Flounder. See the complete and up to date reports at Amelia Island Fishing News.

Nice Amelia Island Flattie!

Plan to book a trip on The Anglers Mark!
Seatrout will be King in November but you can still expect to catch Redfish, Flounder and even Sheepshead. Temperatures still should be getting up in the 70's which makes for some great Amelia Island backcountry fishing! Folks, this is the best time of year to be fishing Amelia Island backwaters!

Flood Tides in November:
If temperatures don't fall too much, this will be the last opportunity of the year to find those tailing Redfish in the grass. Good dates would be the mornings of November 11, 12, 13, and 14th and then right after Thanksgiving - mornings of November 25, 26, 27, 28, and 29th. would be good. Fishing out of The Anglers Mark, we'll plan to ease up to the flooded grass and get out and wade to tailing fish.
