;Keaton Beach Fishing Report July 13 – 14 2018
Trout fishing has been great this past week as evidenced by my trip Saturday for Steve Brown of Cedar Island and his son and grandson down from Ft. Payne, Alabama. We brought in 16 keepers despite having a falling tide for all but 2 hours in the early morning and being chased by a storm which shortened our trip by an hour. We caught 6 trout on the incoming tide from 3.5 – 4 ft. then, when the tide stood still, we moved out to 5.5 – 6 ft. and caught the balance. We caught all our trout on live pinfish under Back Bay Thunders.
Tuesday, I had Sammy Rogers and Ricky Davis of Cochran, Ga. out and we had an exceptional trip. We caught a limit of three reds to 27 inches; then threw back a 29” red and had 5 trout all from 3.5 – 4 feet of water. I moved out to a flat in 5.5 – 6 ft. and we finished up our limit of 15 trout. We had three trout over 20” long and our 15 weighed a whopping 33.7 pounds! Not bad for a 95 degree day with a bluebird sky in July! Of course we caught our fish on live pinfish under Back Bay Thunders. This was Sammy and Ricky’s first trip out with me and they had a blast catching a great cooler of fish.
