Keaton Beach Fishing report October 30,31 2015
Trout fishing was Great last week as we had 15 trout for Billy Pillow, Wes Blue and me on Thursday. Then I had Jim Bruchey with his son, Kendall both of Moultrie, Ga. out Friday and they had a blast catching 15 trout and 5 reds on live pinfish and shrimp rigged up under Back Bay Thunders. Saturday, I had Bill King and Parrish King of Andalusia, Alabama with John Anderson of Destin, Florida and we brought in 18 trout to 23" , five reds to 26" a Spanish and an Black Sea Bass. We fished 3 - 4.5 feet of water to land our fish. The reds ate shrimp and pins while the trout were caught on live pinfish. We had half our trout on the rise then half on the first two hours of the fall.
Sunday, I took Will King ( Bill's other son) with Blake Lomenick both from Auburn Alabama, and Jared Harden of Ft. Walton, Fla. out and we caught 13 trout and 6 reds all on the incoming tide on live pinfish rigged under Back Bay Thunders.
Wednesday, I had John Ferguson and David Farnsworth of Americus, Ga. on board and we brought in 11 trout and 6 reds fishing with live pinfish and live shrimp under Back Bay Thunders from 3.5 - 4 feet of water...after we ran from the rain and then got a little wet coming back through it.
The unusually high hi tides made it interesting last weekend; but this weekend ought to be easier to figure out with less range of tide to scatter the trout. The afternoon rising tide should hold the best bite but we shall see after the smoke clears.
