Amelia Island Fishing Report 9-2012

Amelia Island Fishing Report
September 2012

Get away from it all and ......let's go fishing!

Our Summer Guests have come and gone... but NOW is the best time to be fishing Amelia Island waters! Fall fishing means better weather, less crowds, and great fishing. Follow all the action at the Amelia Island Fishing Report. Get away from it all and...Let's Go Fishing on The Angler's Mark!

August Report/September Forecast:
August started off with a bang with one of my senior customers blowing out the Anglers Mark Bragging Rights Tournament Redfish category. We were treated to a sighting of one of the biggest deer I've seen in the area but catching of some nice Redfish was our prime objective. Sometimes the weather got in the way but usually it didn't have an affect on the great fishing. At one point we were catching Flounder on every trip. September should bring even better fishing to the area. Last year we had a couple of mornings in the high 60's, warming to the mid 80's - great weather. Flood tides beginning Sunday the 16th and running to Friday the 21st should make for some awesome tailing red trips! So if you want to Get Away From it All, give me a shout and we'll go fishing!

Fish Bites.....
Fun Friday Fishing - start your weekend early!
I've had a number of sole anglers request a "spot" on the boat so I've picked Friday September 21, 7am at Atlantic Seafood and will take the first (3) anglers who contact me. We'll plan to fish a 1/2 day (4 hours), $115 each angler. I've gotta have (3) to make it worth launching the boat. As always, I provide the bait, tackle, rods, reels, and fishing license - all you need to do is bring a hat and sunglasses! There's a good tide on that date so it should be a great fishing day!

The First Coast Fly Fishers will meet Monday September 10th at 7pm at the Jacksonville Mariott located near the intersection of I-95 and J. Turner Butler Blvd. Come early and practice your casting on the pond!

Young angler makes BIG catch: This young angler is only 7 years old -watch how he plays this big Red perfectly. Read all about it on Amelia Island Fishing Reports.

The Anglers Mark Bragging Rights Tournament had some movement this month with Paul Desire taking over 1st place in the Redfish category with a 30 1/2" fish. Paul picked up this fish with a top water Bite-a-Bait lure fished over some oyster beds. Mike Maron moved into second place in the Redfish category with a 28 3/4" fish. Ryan Leshinski moved into first place of the Flounder category with a 20" Flounder caught on a mud minnow and jig at a creek run out.
