Trout were happier this weekend especially when the w-i-n-d was blowing and I had three, Jeff Henderson of Oxford , Ga. with Tim and Dennis Mee of Sebring, Florida on board Saturday and we caught 12 trout and 3 reds on Live pinfish under Back Bay Thunders in 2.5 -3.5 feet of water.
The tide was weird Saturday morning when with little to no breeze we had 2.5 feet of extra water up on the flats. I have no memory of experiencing that before. On the same tide time the next morning there was just over 2 ft less water in on the flats with 8-10 knot North breeze? Very strange?
Sunday, we had Jeff and Tim with his wife Kasey, instead of his Dad and she put it on them catching her first ever and another redfish then catching her limit of trout and a mackerel. We brought in 12 trout and 3 redfish again Sunday.

Lee Crowe was down from Greensboro County Ga. with Chuck Hurst and two others on board and they caught 12 trout and 8 reds Saturday and then had 18 trout and 8 redfish Sunday. Lee was fishing with live shrimp under Cajun Thunders with some Gulp and live pinfish thrown in for fun. Lee fished 2.5 -4.5 feet of water.
Sam Shaw his wife and son were down from Homerville , Ga. Monday and had six reds an seven trout on live pins and shrimp under Cajuns and Back Bays from3.4 ft. of water.
Most folks caught some fish over the weekend but man there was a lot of folks out there Saturday. Kind of reminds me of the funniest thing I heard this scallop season.This guy was standing there next to me at the fish/scallop cleaning station on the main canal at Sea Hag at Keaton Beach when I heard him say to his cell phone with it on the “speaker mode” “DUDE, Just take a picture of the shore so I can find where you are and text it to me” Well, his friend out there scalloping said, “Man, You just don’t understand, you can’t see the blinking shore there are so many boats here that’s all you can see…DUDE!
Well, it wasn’t quite that bad but every rock or bar you or I have marked or named had a boat on it Saturday.
