Amelia Island Fishing Report 4- 2012

Amelia Island Fishing Report
April 2012
by Captain Lawrence Piper

Spring has Sprung and the Fishing's Great!

We've already had a few days with temperature approaching the 90's.  Bait is showing up and Slot Sized Redfish and larger are in the back waters. Keep up with what's biting and where they are at by reading the Amelia Island Fishing Report.   Push away from that desk!  Forget about your To-Do list!  Get the kids away from that television and book a trip. Get away from it all and...Let's Go Fishing on The Angler's Mark!

March Report/April Forecast

As I mentioned, Slot sized Redfish are back up in the marshes and creeks.  We had some great fishing trips in the month of March, with a Redfish Bonanza early in the month.  Another group started out catching small Trout but then pulled in more Slot sized Redfish. We found that we were having better luck along the oyster beds rather than the structure of docks and logs. At times we were finding big Reds and big Trout   in the same area.  April is "Spring Break Month" and the waterways will be full of boaters and anglers.  In April we will continue to see catches of Redfish and more catches of Trout and Flounder. The Bonnethead Shark are moving in and will be fun to catch on light tackle.  Last April we even caught a Spanish Mackerel back in the river and saw our first Manatee of the year.   Whiting will still be biting. Keep up with all the fishing action at the Amelia Island Fishing Report or Get Away From it All,  give me a shout and we'll go fishing!
