You will be fishing aboard a 22’ Pathfinder 22TRS, one of the top bay boats around. It is equipped with top-notch electronics, a wireless trolling motor with Pinpoint GPS, so having to use a bulky anchor is all but forgotten. It makes the whole trip less stressful. The fishing gear used will be all Daiwa BG Reels on 7’ rods. Captain Matt has setups ready for all different types of fishing that will be encountered.
You will be mainly using live bait under floats, or jig heads to fish the bottom. Some of the species that are caught here are Redfish, Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Jack Crevalle, Sharks and more. Depending on the time of year, Tarpon and Tripletail become abundant too.
All trips will include water, cooler, ice, bait, tackle, rods, reels, fishing licenses and the beautiful backdrop of Amelia Island. Items you should bring are polarized sunglasses, sunscreen, a hat, non-marking soles on shoes, and any snacks you may want to eat. Catch and release is normally practiced, but if you want to keep some for the dinner table, Captain Matt will clean and fillet it at no additional cost. There are a few places that will cook your catch, with Salty Pelican being one of them.
