Cooler Weather Is Going To Improve The Cedar Key Fish Bite

Cedar Key Florida Inshore Fishing Report

Some Cedar Key Marina customers with a couple of nice Reds

It’s still hot, but the red fish like it and they have been biting good. They love cut mullet, shrimp and hit good on the plastic baits too. The trout have started hitting again and they seem to be in the deeper grass flats, but we are catching them when red fishing too around the bars and shallow waters. We look for them to move back to the shallow grass flats in October, water temp is still 85 deg now. The mackerel are hitting good out on the flats and out front near sea horse reef. We have plenty of sharks to play with, haven’t seen many Tarpon lately. As the water temp tends to drop the drum, whiting and sand trout should start hitting good too.

Cedar Key Florida Offshore Fishing Report

The red grouper are plentiful, we are catching a few keeper size, but most are still small. The gags are hit and miss, we seem to be catching them in 50 to 70 ft. The Amberjack’s are still open and can be found on the offshore wrecks, they love live bait best. The grouper are hitting on frozen baits just as good as live bait. We did get a couple kings and they should be moving back real soon. The grunts and sea bass are always hungry and can be caught in 30 to 70 ft.

Bite On, The Ocklawaha River Largemouth Bite Has Exploded

The Largemouth Bass bite has exploded on the Ocklawaha River near Ocala. After months of high water levels due to Hurricane Irma, and a record rainfall year, the Ocklawaha River has finally settled down, and is back within it’s banks. The bite is on!

The first place I fished this morning netted 5 Bass in 5 minutes with a total weight of 23 pounds! I hated to leave, but I had to check out several other spots. After running through 2 dozen shiners, I wound up catching and releasing a dozen Largemouths. The total weight was around 40 pounds, including a lunker that tipped the scales at over 8 pounds. This is trophy Bass fishing at it’s finest!

I can’t imagine the bite getting any better, but the water conditions should continue to improve as we head into fall.
