Keaton Beach Reds and Trout

I go flats fishing often in the Steinhatchee/Keaton Beach area and was wondering what types of rigs and tackle y'all use to catch redfish, trout and whatever else you might find down there in the channels and inshore.

    Soft plastics on a 1/8oz jig head usually works for me or a rapala skitterwalk. Cut ladyfish/mullet with a popping cork and a jig head and let it sit, if there are reds around u will find them. Ladyfish for bait on Reds is like there candy.

    Good Luck

    Pretty standard stuff, topwater spooks, mirrodines, popping corks with just about anything below them, and a jig head with a paddle tail. If none of those options work they probably just aren't in the mood to eat. I like to use cut ladyfish/mullet/shrimp on the bottom too if I'm bait fishing.
