Surf fishing on Amelia Island is always fun, but if you are going to try it during the colder of winter you may need a local tip or two. Blues and whiting both swim along our shores and can easily be caught with a piece of fresh shrimp fished on the bottom of the ocean.
If you are fishing for whiting, keep in mind that they have small mouths and you may only need to use ¬Ω of the peeled bait shrimp when fishing with a small single hook. You will want to cast as far out as you can and if you can get to the beach as the tide turns to outgoing you should be able to catch a mess for dinner. The best spots are the old pipeline, Amelia Park on the south end or try the jetties at Fort Clinch State Park.
