Keaton beach fishing report march 15 –16
Doesn’t get any better’n this folks!
Doug Garwood and Joe Duncan of Dalton, Ga. were down at Keaton for the entire week Wednesday to Wednesday and they caught their limit of trout each day with an redfish here and there for good measure. This pair caught their fish on the Walmart magnum lazer minnows ( Renegades we call them) which are out of production. This hard lipped jerkbait is just one plug folks used to catch a limit of reds on. Mark Casteel of Sylvester, Ga. was down fro Sunday last to this Sunday and he caught his limit each day on a few different plugs including but no only on Bite-A-Bait fighters, MirrOlure’s NEW “Skins” MirrOdines, and a few on Topwater stickbaits as well. Mark had a few reds each day and one day had a limit of trout for five on board!
The trout have been most cooperative during the last hour of the incoming tide and the first hour of the flop. 2.5 – 3 feet seemed to have produced the most fish while some have caught them in less. During our trips this past week I found fish on Paul Brown Devils , Assassin 5” shads fished un-weighted on a Daiichi 5/0 offset worm hook, in several colors, and on Bite–A-Bait Gold fighters. We also fished the ole Renegades to pick up a limit one day.
This weekend will have late morning High tides and the bite will probably wrap that Hi. there isn’t much range in the tide so patience will out and I wouldn’t expect as active a bite as we had on last week’s new Moon tides.
