Trout fishing has been Great if you found the dirty water... if not... you didn't have much fun.
We had over 80+ trout Wednesday for Phil Ferris and Terry Wallace of Tallahassee, Fl. with 15 keepers to 18" and we kept three blues to 4.5 pounds. They fished live shrimp under Back Bay Thunders in 3.5 - 4 feet of water. The breeze would literally create keepers from the same water and when it slicked off all you could catch was shorts.
Tuesday, I had Donna and Wayne Walker of Dunnellon, Fl. out and we landed well over 100 trout kept 15 to 19" and kept a dozen blues for my cats. We probably threw back 30+ blues as well. Donna fished with live shrimp under Back Bays while Wayne and I fished with Assassin 5" Shads in Croaker Shad and Sea Shads in Mamma's 14kt. and Vineyard Eel eels bounced on Assassin 5005 1/16oz. jigheads in Chartreuse. For over an hour it was literally a fish every cast. We fished 4 - 5 feet of water.
Don't know where the reds were or went as we aren't running into them and we didn't have enough water with the Northeast w-i-n-d-s and the negative tides earlier this week. This weekend the tides are higher and some reds should be caught near the larger creeks. I would guess on Gulp and live shrimp.
Keaton Beach marina is closed; so make other launching and fueling plans if you are coming to Keaton.
Update: we also had limits Thursday and Friday details next report
