Keaton Report Memorial Day Weekend

 

Billy Pillow and I fished Friday for a scouting-and-catching-bait trip and had 8 fine trout with two 23” fish, one each. Most of our fish came on live pinfish under Back Bay Thunders while I caught my 23” trout on a Super Spook in the “Blue Stripe Special” (Silver Mullet) pattern. This sow came from 5.2 feet of water over 2 miles offshore. She blasted the Spook!

 

We had a Fantastic trip Saturday for Aaron and Lindy Griner of Alapaha, Ga. It was Lindy’s first-ever trip to the Gulf flats fishing and she had a Blast! We brought in 13 trout with three over 20 “ long as well as four Black Sea Bass  and two reds including Lindy’s first redfish! We found the trout in 5.5 – 6.5 feet of water. Our reds were off the hill by about 200 - 300 yards acting like the water was too fresh in close. All our fish came in on live pinfish under Back Bays.

 

The water temps were up to 82-83 degrees before the monsoons came, so I guess the water temps will be down somewhat by this weekend. I would also guess the fish up close to the hill, in general, will move further off the grass line to avoid the too-fresh water , what with all the rains we have been( are) experiencing.
