Keaton beach fishing report Nov. 18 -19 2016
We have managed to catch fish for the past 5 days ( today is wed 11/16/16) despite the lack of breeze early in the a.m. the last three days. The water is very clear and clear all the way past Big Spring creek so there is little change in color to provide cover for the trout when it is slick. This had made for slow mornings.
We had 14 reds ( kept 4) and threw back the balance including two over 24" long Sunday for Chuck Hurst, Jeff Henderson and Billy Johnson of Bogart, Ga. We also had 10 trout, three flounder a Spanish and a couple of BSB. We used live pinfish and live shrimp under Back Bay Thunders to land our fish. Most of the bite for trout was in 3.5 - 4.5 feet of water. The falling tide made the most trout and we had no breeze whatsoever on the incoming tide.
Took Wayne and Donna Walker of Dunnellon, Fl. out Wednesday( today) and we managed 10 trout and two reds with a 25" trout for Wayne. Our trout were in 3.5 - 4.5 ft. of water on the incoming tide. The reds ate in 2.5 ft. on top of the tide change. Pinfish under Back Bays continue to be the ticket.
