keaton report August 18-19 2017

Trout fishing was great when you could dodge the Thunderstorms and catch a breeze from the draw of the same.

I had Butch Barwick, Alan Feagin and Buddy Martin all from Columbus, Ga. out Monday and Tuesday and we caught a limit of trout both days with one 21" red on Tuesday for Butch. We fished live pinfish under Back Bays in 88 degree water and fished the incoming tide 1:30 p.m. til 7:30 p.m. on Monday then had to fish the falling tide from 8:00 a.m. til 1:30 p.m. for our limit Tuesday.

We caught most of our trout out 1.5 to 2 miles out as the low tide .8ft. Monday didn't leave much water to fish in close. We fished the 5.5' - 4.5' break for most of our fish. Tuesday a.m. we got about .5 mile out and found the red and a couple of trout before moving back out to the deeper grass. I managed one nice trout
