The Speckled Trout bite is great and they are still on the grass flats in 3 to 5′ of water and around the bars & cuts. People are using popping corks, 1/4 oz jig heads with live shrimp, gulps and assassin soft baits. The Spanish Mackerel are in close too as well as many kinds of sharks. We have been catching Cobia around the markers and flats and many Tarpon have been spotted too. The Redfish are biting good and it’s only getting better. We also have been getting some triple tail around the buoy markers, using shrimp with small hooks and no weight, just drift it up to them.

The Kingfish are still patrolling the coast and the Cobia have turned on pretty good too. The Spanish Mackerel are out around the reef grassy areas at about 10′. The Gag grouper and red snapper are biting and are on fire in 45 to 60 ft, and we can’t wait till Thursday June 1st to start keeping some. The Red Grouper are on the rebound, we are catching them but they are only 15 to 18″, so we look for that to get better as the months go on.

So come on down to Cedar Key, the weather is finally good, the wind has stopped blowing and the fish are hungry. Remember to stop by the marina for your Cedar Key fishing supplies, Cedar Key boat rentals and daily current fishing details!

The waters are warming up and hopefully the wind has calmed down. The speckled trout and redfish have been biting good on live shrimp, gulps and assassin baits. The grass flats all around Cedar Key are producing and the islands and oyster bars are producing reds too. The sharks are plentiful, we have had some tarpon and triple tail action too. The mackerel and cobia have shown up as well. Don’t forget your chum bag.

Cedar Key Offshore Fishing Report
The kings and cobia have made it here. Last weekend there were about 25 nice kings caught and a few cobias. The reef area and structure spots are holding bait which equals bigger fish, if your impatient, troll or just find bait pods, set out chum and some free lines n bottom rigs and wait for the action. The gags and red snapper are thick in 40-60 ft, but must be unharmed and released. The red grouper are biting but mostly too small to keep, still a good sign since we haven’t seen them in a year. And of course the grunts and sea bass will always help feed the family.
Come on down n enjoy the spring “hot” fishing.

So come on down and enjoy the spring fish bite and stop by the marina for your Cedar Key fishing supplies, Cedar Key boat rentals and daily current fishing details!

Cedar Key Fishing Is Awesome Now

The fishing action is awesome right now. The redfish are on the sand bars and islands, and they always love mullet but shrimp or gulps work too. The trout are biting and are on fire and the Spanish Mackerel have showed up. The bait pods have returned as well and we’ve spotted 2 Cobia but didn’t catch them. The Speckled Trout are hitting in shrimp and your favorite soft baits, use popping corks and a 1/4 oz. jig-head on the grass flats and cuts in 3 to 5 ft. of water.

The Spanish Mackerel are here and we look for kings and cobia shortly. The Sheepshead are still biting great but I expect that to start slowing down in the next 2 or 3 weeks. The gags & red snapper are biting great but you must release them unharmed. The red grouper are still very scarce but we are catching them but small and there’s not a lot of them either. The grunts and sea bass are biting good in 20-45 ft. I look for the Kings and the cobia to show up in the next few weeks so have rods rigged and ready to go while your bottom fishing. The water temp is up to 68 degrees and climbing.

So come on down and enjoy the spring fish bite and stop by the marina for your Cedar Key fishing supplies and daily current fishing details!

Fishing Is Picking Up In Cedar Key

Cedar Key Inshore Fishing Report
The speckled trout in Cedar Key are biting great on the flats and bar areas and the bite seems better on the incoming tide and in the afternoon.

We should almost be out of cold fronts and that means the redfish will be coming out of the creeks. Live Shrimp, mud minnows and your favorite gulps will work just fine, for now we’re still doing better with jig-heads on the bottom fishing kind of slow. But by mid-march the popping corks will be better. And if we start talking about sheepshead, we have the pictures to prove they’re biting good on rock piles and docks.


Cedar Key Offshore Fishing Report
For the best bet, it’s sheepshead fishing on the offshore reefs and rock piles, we use knocker rig and either live or frozen shrimp. The sea bass and grunts are plentiful in 30 to 60 ft and they bite on anything, but we find cut bait gets the bigger ones. The amberjacks are out on the offshore wrecks and high structure, and they love live pinfish but some jigs will work too. The red snapper are thick but must be released unharmed, as well as the gag’s. The red grouper are still hard to find but we’ve been catching some small ones so hopefully they moving back. Oh, we also been catching a couple of Spanish mackerel while sheepshead fishing, that’s a good sign for early migration.

So come on down, enjoy the fun and stop by the marina for your Cedar Key fishing supplies and daily current fishing details!
