Keaton Report 4/20,21/ 2018


Trout fishing has been Outstanding! with limits of 20 trout Thursday, Friday and Saturday of last week for the Steven Cook group from Dallus , Ga. and the Mike Norris group from Macon, Ga.  We fished with live pinfish under Back Bay Thunders to land these limits. Our fish came from 4.5 – 5.5 ft. of water on the rising tide. Tuesday I took Jimmy Douglas of Homerville, Ga out and we landed our limit of 10 trout with one over 23”for top honors.  I fished with Assassin “Fried Chicken “ Sea Shads while Jimmy fished live pinfish under Back Bays in 4.5 –4.5 ft. of water. Wednesday Doug Shropshire and I fished artificials only, ( Assassin plastics Only) and caught a limit of ten trout on Sweet Pea, Stinky Pink, Croaker Shad, Native Shrimp, Magic Grass, Fried Chicken, and Houdini and caught shorts on a half dozen other colors in “5 and Sea Shads both bouncing on an Assassin 1/8 oz. spring-lock jighead and in combo with an Original Cajun Thunder.

This report from Dave Bosch of Tifton, Ga. ‘ Fished on 4/14 with Peng Chee, Tim VanSumeren, and Conner Van Sumeren. ( also of Tifton) We wound up with a limit of sea trout on a mixture of pin fish and jig/plastic combos.  We had our best bite early in the rising tide in 4-4.5', followed by a mid-day lull, then a pretty good bite on the beginning of the fall.  Water temps were 69-73.   ‘
