Keaton Beach Fishing report April 8 - 9 2016
Trout fishing has been a different adventure every day since Sunday with cold and 20 knot winds... to slick the next day and no drift; then back to a North w-i-n-d which crabbed the boat sideways ( again no drift) back to 20 knots from the East ( today)
We have caught nice trout each day but haven't seen a red since Sunday. The North winds blew all the water out Sunday and I guess the reds scattered 'cause all I had located vamooshed.
We caught 13 trout and a nice red Sunday and 13 trout and a 3 pound flounder Monday then struggled for several trout Tuesday. We had 10 nice trout and three Spanish to 4 pounds Wednesday. We have fished with live pinfish under Back Bays in everywhere from 3.5 feet to 6.5 feet of water. The water temps are running from 66 - 68 in the mornings to 70 - 74 degrees in the afternoons. We have also caught some nice trout on Assassin's five inch shads in Croaker Shad and Ripper and on Sea Shads in P.T. 2000 and Limetreuse Ghost this week.
Jimmy Douglas of Homerville, Ga. was down with two pals and they caught a limit of fifteen trout and had a bunch of keeper throwbacks on Wednesday. Jimmy was fishing with live pinfish under Back Bay Thunders in 3.5 - 4.5 feet of water.
