Amelia Island Fishing Reports

Date: Tuesday, January 19, 2010 - Amelia Island Offshore/Inshore

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

OFFSHORE:

Well let's see what can we keep? Now that's a question I will get asked a bunch in the next few months. Right now the bluewater is really producing some nice catches of blackfin, Wahoo &, a few sails. As far as bottom fishing goes, so far his winter has been one of the best in recent years for sea bass. Thank goodness. I won't waste anyone’s time are get my blood flowing with the horrendous decisions made by the SAFMC. However, if you’re looking to spend a day on the water a nice mess of sea bass, plus the opportunity to see the Northern Wright Whales, which spawn off our coast this time of year, is a good bet.

INSHORE:

There are still a few over sized reds around the jetties, along with some decent sized black drum. At the end of next month the monster black-drum will move in along the beach. Fishing for these will be a good reason to spend some much needed time on the water with friends & family. I haven't heard anything to report on whiting. As far as the trout they should be plentiful especially along the deeper holes.

Until later, good fishin'

Inshore

Thanks to tropical storm Fay, the good fishing we were experiencing is probably over for a while, due to massive amounts of fresh water running out of the inland tributaries and into our surrounding waters. Reports of catfish and gar may outnumber the whiting, redfish, sharks, and tarpon the we were catching. Give it a couple of days, and then try it.

Offshore

Bottom fishing should continue to be very strong, although live bait could be hard to come by. Make sure to take along plenty of dead bait. I prefer Boston Mackerel and fresh locally caught squid if I can't find live bait. Trolling will probably be slow for a while, unless you can get out to around 100 feet of water.

Remember for the latest bite report and for best bets, contact Captain Cris.

Until later, good fishin'

Whiting are still biting at the beach, but it's hard to find the big ones. The occasional stray Pompano or Bluefish can still be found. Best Whiting fishing is very early in the morning.

It's summer, so the sharks have officially shown up. Beach is littered with 3 to 4 foot Spinners, Black Tips, and Sharpnose sharks. Any kind of cut bait seems to work.

Inshore:

Whiting are biting just about anywhere you can hold bottom with fresh shrimp. Reds, blues, and the occassional cobia are a good possibility as well. Big sharks at the deep hole off of FORT CLINCH are a sure shot during slack tides. Trout & flounder are consistent. Remember to use fresh local caught shrimp for the best bites from the creek to your table.

Offshore:

Kings are strong on all the local spots. Cobia, Cuda's, Bonita, & the elusive Sailfish are also a string pulling plus. Greenies seem to be the best choice of bait. Bottom fishing is off the charts still, with excellent catches of snapper, grouper b-liners and jacks.

Report By: Amelia-Island-Fishing.Com Staff

Bluefish and Whiting are still biting at the beach. Bluefish slightly smaller than a few weeks ago, and not many bull Whiting, but plenty of each to be caught.

Big rays and sharks are also starting to show up in the surf. Several days last week a number of large Lady Fish were caught, and lots of bait in the water produced a couple of schools of small Spanish Mackeral on the beach.

Inshore:

Red drum at the jetties, and also some Bluefish, Spanish Mackeral, and Bonnethead Sharks. In the river, Whiting when strong currents are fishable. Also a few trout and reds, and the occasional Cobia.

Offshore:

Live bait on area wrecks is producing Kings, Barracuda, and Cobia. Bottom fishing for Snapper is still good, but slowing down, and the occasional Grouper is still being caught.

The Bluefish are here! Nice numbers of two to three pound blues being caught in the surf if you can find a day when the wind isn't howling. Whiting have slowed down, but there are still a few being caught. Also a few Pompano on days when the water is clear.

Inshore:

I've gotta say that the whiting are still the best bet. Fishing from the surf has been tough due to an east wind. Yesterday we had an excellent catch of large whiting at the range marker in the Cumberland Sound. Also, we had a few small blues. Reports on the drum have been hush hush! Due to the WIND! Trout fishin' seems to be producing good numbers, however my sources tell me they are still small. Fishin' the creeks and shell beds are a good bet for slot reds.

Offshore:

When the weather allows the bottomfishing should continue to be phenomenal. Snapper still being the most productive. Throw in the occasional grouper, a few sea bass, and maybe even a flounder, and you have the makings of one hell of a fish fry! As far as striking fish you probably need to be in at least 110-115 ft. and other than a few decent reports of blackfin and scattered wahoo at the ledge. It still is pretty slow.

Inshore:

Get your crabs & clams on ice, the drum are here. I have had several reports of drum from 25 to 75 lbs. Caught this weekend at the south jetties at Amelia Island. Trout fishing seems to be good numbers of fish, though they are still small. Whiting are still a good bet from the surf to the mouths of the inland rivers.

Offshore:

Snapper! This past fall & winter has been unbelievable for bottom fishing off N.E. Florida. The waters seem to have continued to be several degrees warmer than normal for this time of year. Limits of snapper with good catches of grouper and seabass have been the norm. Most of these reports are inside of 17 miles. Good catches of kingfish have been reported at T.W. Gulfstream has continued to be spotty at best. There have been good reports of blackfin tuna in the 20 lb. range, with a few wahoo as well.

I must apologize for not being more up to date with my reports. Honey Do's, bad weather, and middle school science projects have kept me busy.

Offshore

Has been on the improve for bottom dwelling species. There have been reports of good catches of keeper snaps and a few nice grouper. You still have to weed thru the little ones. It should only get better as the sea temps cool down.

Inshore

Gigantic redfish still the best best. The south jetties at Fernandina at just about any time. Also, increased reports of catches in the Cumberland Sound area. Fresh whiting and blues being the choice bait.

Until later, good fishin'

A bad day of fishing is much better than a good day of cutting the grass.
