Keller Bay 
February 23, 2013

Trip Description:

Keller Bay is located between Lavaca Bay (Port Lavaca) and Caranchua Bay

Keller Bay seems to always hold lots of trout. Some days you can catch about 50 trout.. and keep around 6.  In the cooler months they tend to be  bigger.

There are several locations to find fish in Keller Bay. We usually find trout in the areas with grass. If you can see dark grass you will usually be catching trout.    The reds seem to be nearer to the south shore and along the ledges along the shore.

     CAMPING Saturday Night  (Optional)

This year Mark Frank (new Member) has offered his property to camp on. His house is about 15 minutes from the launch at Keller Bay. The map below shows the location of his house and how to get there. He has enough room for RVs, Tents, and Trailers so bring what you need to stay the night. We will have access to the house for eating and restrooms. There are also public use restrooms in the public areas in his neighborhood.
We plan to fish first then set up camp Saturday afternoon / evening.  Then fish on Sunday untill you are tired.

We might try the other bays in the area if Keller is slow.  His house is on Carancahua Bay and Turtle Bay is just down the road.  We might even fish the marsh which is in his front yard.  There are lots of options.

You can come for the day Saturday or Sunday.  We will meet at the launch on Keller on Saturday.  If you are early or late, we will see you on the water.  We will then meet up at Marks house about 3-4pm to rest and set up camp and have dinner. (might do bbq or fish fry depending on the number of us staying the night.  More details to follow)
We can hang out in the house till we retire to our tents.
