    Fernandina Beach (Amelia Island) fishing

    This wind is relentless. Painting and rewiring the boat. Stuck fishing the surf. The whiting bite is starting to pick up. And the surfers are feeling the black drum drumming.

    your right about the wind, been awful for weeks up here. I went out yesterday morning for a couple of hours in the am with some topwaters. It was super high tide and the bite was weak, but managed to get a couple little reds.

ID:	23856Got out Thursday morning on the extreme high tide. Had the best day this season on sheepies. Had 9 in the cooler in 1.5 hours and had to stop fishing because I couldn't get any more in the cooler. Nothing under 6lbs and the biggest was pushing 11. Two over 10. Looks like the wind is going to lay down a bit today. If I didn't have to drive to NC this morning, I'd be on'em again this morning. It was unbelievable.

    Talked to the wave riders yesterday just off of Ocean Ave. They are hearing the drum getting stronger. Looks like we might get some good action just off the beaches. I am also anticipating an early run of cobs the water temp is already creeping up on 70.

    Can't believe we have to wait for May to harvest the bass... getting out of hand folks.

    Why do you say that ChumSlick?
    I thought that the last ruling was revoked on the Black Sea Bass.
    This is the latest info that I see about them:
    Sea Bass, Black   ●
    12"
    Atlantic; 10" Gulf
    15 per harvester per day
    Atlantic

    I see no other restrictions.

    Nevermind - I was mis-informed.
    Here is a link with the latest that I found on the subject: http://myfwc.com/fishing/saltwater/r.../blackseabass/
    They sure don't make it easy for us to stay informed.

    Do you want to fish but can't afford to go by yourself or do you just want to go on somebody elses boat and share the expenses, if so then check out this site to see what is available in your area. www availableangler com

    Of course not. A mess of bass out of season would get you in your pocket book pretty good.
