Keaton Report 9/22-23/18

I expect Great fishing at Keaton this weekend with the early morning low tides and  a decent forecast to match. Find  stained water clear enough for you to see you baits under your Back Bays and Original Cajun Thunders and you should have success.

We had limits of trout for Cecil and Gwen Stalnaker of Ft. White, Florida, Friday with three trout over 20 inches long in the creel. We also had two reds which were just out there mixed with the trout for no particular reason. This was the couples first trip ever to Keaton Beach and first time fishing with live pinfish under Back Bay Thunders. We caught our 15 trout in 5.5 to 3.5 feet of water.

Saturday Saw a limit of nice sized trout for Robert Vason of Mt. Dora, Florida who bested a 23” trout for his top fish of the day.  He started off with three fish on three baits. He fished with live pinfish under Back Bays while I caught my share on Asssassin’s 5’ shads in the Croaker Shad pattern rigged up under an Original Cajun Thunder. We fished 6.0 - 4.0 feet of water having to move out of too much stain and turbid water as the west w-i-n-d would close out the bite on each drift.
