Keaton Beach Report 9/23,24/16

We had great trout fishing for Gene and Sandra Seago of Valdosta, Ga. last week with 10 trout and a red on Friday; then 11 trout and two reds to 22 inches on Saturday. We fished with live pinfish and pigfish under Back Bay Thunders in 3.5 - 4.5 feet of water. The reds were 1 - 1.5 miles from the grass line avoiding the too-fresh water near the hill, I would imagine.
I spoke to several boats this week who caught a lot of shorts and a few keepers but they were mostly fishing a falling tide, this week, and had very little breeze to work with.
Water temps are running 84-86 degrees and things are getting back to normal; but expect to fish stained water when you come.
I love the stained water......makes for better fishing.
Keaton Beach ramp and canal is open, cleared of debris and ready for all who wish to fish.
You should keep an eye out though after a Hurricane for miscellaneous debris you might encounter in the open gulf .
If you see a board or something larger please put a marker on it get a lat lon and call Taylor County or the FFWC.
