Keaton Report May 6 – 7 2018


Great trout, Great reds, Great Folks, Great trips it’s all good as the Millenials say ....

We caught our limit of reds three out of four trips in a row last week ( Saturday I didn’t go looking for reds as , well, it was Saturday. ) and had a fine box of trout each day with 14 ,11, 13 and 10 taken. We also had our limit of reds for Rick and Dawn Preitz of Marianna, Fl. with their son, Nate Tuesday of this week as well as 13 trout with three over 20” in length. We have been catching trout ( as long as the w-i-n-d will blow) in 4.5 – 5.5 feet of water on live pinfish under Back Bay Thunders. The reds have been on the rocks  taking live bait as well while I did catch a couple on Intruder Hex Spoons. I also caught a few trout on Assassin 5” in Croaker Shad and several on Wagasaki Elite Shiner under an Original Cajun Thunder ( when I got a chance to fish)

The Perry Optimist Club Tourney is this weekend, Saturday, May 5th; so come down to Keaton and see if you can win $3000 catching the largest trout . Entry fee $50.  Several other Cash winnings and prizes available for redfish, trout and cobia. For complete info call 850-843-0578 or go to
