Keaton Beach Fishing report November 14-15 2014
The trout have acclimated to the cooler water temperatures as evidenced by the bite we had yesterday. I had Terry McHone and Rebecca Land of Worth County, Ga. out and they caught over 50 trout with 15 nice keepers including 3 over 20" with a 24.5" fish for Terry and an 23.5 " trout for Rebecca! We fished with live pinfish under Back Bay Thunders in 3.5 - 4 feet of water to land this fine box of trout.
We caught trout for over 4.5 hours which was greatly contrasting the abbreviated bite of last week during the full moon tides. I fished with Capt. Dave Malone and we managed our limit both Friday and Sunday; however we couldn't beg a trout bite until the last two hours of the flood tide. We caught trout, reds and flounder on Paul Brown Devils, C-Eye MirrOdines, and on live shrimp under Back Bays. David had a 19" flounder Sunday on a P.B Devil from 2.5 ft.
Jack Minchey was down with a pal from Eatonton, Ga. and had his limit of trout Monday with 7 trout and a nice 26" red Sunday in five hours fishing time. Jack's crew was throwing live pinfish and shrimp in 3 - 4 feet under Cajun Thunders.
The water temperature is holding around 60 - 61 degrees in the mornings and creeping up to 64-66 in the afternoons. The plug bite has been better in waters over 65 as usual and we landed three keepers on Bite-A-Baits yesterday. Look for the trout to hold to the present trend of hitting suspending baits early in the a.m. and taking some hard jerkbaits in the afternoons. Water temperature is everything this time of year. Live shrimp should be the most dependable bite this weekend.
