Cedar Key Florida Inshore Fishing Report
The Redfish bite is on fire, they love it hot. In Cedar Key, anglers are catching them all around the islands, oyster bars and grass bars. They favor fresh cut mullet and hit on your favorite gulps and plastic baits too.
The trout are a little sluggish and have moved out on the edges of the reef but they’re still are being caught on the grass flats using popping corks with shrimp, plastic baits and slow sinking lures. There has been some triple tail, Spanish Mackerel and plenty of caught sharks too. A few people had reports of Snook and we look for the bite only to get even better as fall approaches as well.
Cedar Key Florida Offshore Fishing Report
The grouper are biting good in 35 to 70 ft of water, we seem to be getting more keepers in the deeper water. The red grouper are coming back good and there’s plenty of them but they’re still just a little small. The Gag Grouper are doing good also. We do well using threadfins, mullet, menhaden and live pins. The Kingfish and Cobia should be showing up again through October. We have been seeing schools of Spanish Mackerel and using a chum bag and casting plugs and spoons to bring them in, it’s a lot of fun and they’re eat good too. The grunts and sea bass are plentiful as well.
