1843 Bob McManus of Lake City, Fl. with his best ever, a 25" trout taken July 24
Keaton Beach Report July 28 , 29 2017
Trout have been biting as long as there is a breeze; well, except Monday when they just wouldn't recover from the front rain etc. over the weekend.
Last Friday, Billy Pillow and I fished less than two hours landing four trout and two reds with two trout over 21" long and a 25" red for the best there. We fished right on top of the tide and for :30 afterwards with live pinfish under Back Bays in 3.5 - 4.5 feet of water
Monday, We struggled to catch 3 trout and a red while bringing in a 25" trout for Bob McManus of Lake City, Florida; his best trout -to -date while fishing with his nephew John Runion of Jacksonville. We fished with live pinfish under Back Bays and had two dozen "pick-it-up-take-the-float-under-and-drop-it " bites from trout. Very frustrating day to say the least.
Wednesday, I had the Hardegree Boys, Jim, Mike and Doug of Atlanta way out and after the slick let go we managed 14 trout , a 12" Black Sea Bass and a nice 22" redfish. We caught the trout out in 5' of water while the red came from 4' all on live pinfish under Back Bay Thunders.
