Well, for anyone who wasn't in the water at Keaton Beach this past July Fourth weekend .... we didn't miss you ... there were enough ..... thanks for not coming down.......
Scallops are simply plentiful and easy from all reports I had.
Remember to FLY YOUR DIVE FLAGS It's the LAW!
We went fishing Sunday. Jared Singletary with Daphney and Bailey King, all from Thomasville, Ga. landed 12 trout from 5 - 6 feet of water on live pinfish under Back Bay Thunders. We also had an overslot-sized catch & release 32" Red for Bailey, his first-ever redfish.
Tuesday, I had Stephanie and Logan Giles of Phenix City, Alabama out and we brought back their limits of trout and redfish with one Sand trout to boot.The Sand trout ate a pinfish? We had two trout over 20" Logan landed a 26.5" red on his first-ever trip from Keaton Beach. We fished with live pinfish rigged up 34" under Back Bay Thunders to catch our fish.
This weekend the incoming tides in the afternoons should hold the bite; so sleep in or go scalloping in the mornings, then fish the afternoons for best results on trout and reds.
