Keaton Beach Fishing Report 7/31-8/1 2015
 
Trout Fishing is tougher than usual as we have had little breeze this week and yet we have caught some nice trout over 20" each day for three days. Monday we took home 6 reds to 24" with 5 trout and an 18 - 20 lb. Black Tip for Joe and Joey Chamberlain of Live Oak , Fl. We had 8 trout and four reds to 23" for Bill Kelly with his nephew Travis and great nephew Brody Kelly of Nebraska, Tuesday. Wednesday, I had Jeff, Darla and Dustin Dillard of Plant City, Fl. and we had a tough day of trout with only 4 Trout then caught 3 keeper reds and threw back six short reds. Dustin caught his first-ever redfish and Jeff, his Dad, caught and released his largest red to date, a 37 inch brute which ate a live pinfish under a Back Bay Thunder in 3.5 feet of water. Heck of a battle on TrikFish ten pound Game Green line in that shallow water!
 
The water temps started at 84 degrees, Monday after much rain over the weekend, then were back up to 91 degrees, again, by Wednesday afternoon. Expect to work for the trout unless you can get a breeze over 9 knots or so. 5.5' - 6.5' continues to be my numbers on the trout. All of our fish ate live pinfish under Back Bays. 
 
No other fishing reports as most who are visiting Keaton Beach are scalloping and they continue to do well.
