Cedar Key Inshore & Offshore Fishing Reports

cedar key fishing guideInshore Fishing Report
The Redfish and Speckle Trout are on fire and are large in size. Fishing around all of our islands and 4 to 6 ft grassy flats, using popping corks and live shrimp, mud minnows or frozen finger mullet has produced results.
The Sheepshead are super plentiful around the docks as well and we’re catching some Spanish Mackerel too.

Offshore Fishing Report
Near shore rocky areas, in the Kingfish hole and 10-3 hole are producing good size Sea Bass, and some gag grouper, which you have to release unharmed. We noticed some bait pods showing up as well which is a good sign that it won’t be long before the Spanish and Kingfish show up, there are Cobia will be here too. We are having good luck with larger red grouper in 60 to 75 ft of water but they can be caught in 40 to 50 as well, just a lot more shorts to weed through.

So now’s the time to come on down to Cedar Key and get em

The gags are still biting but we can’t keep em.

The red grouper are biting well in 45 to 60 ft and we’re using threadfin herring, northern mackerel and live bait. The  Amber Jack’s are plentiful around the wrecks and strong structure areas. We also caught a 30lb Kingfish and 4 bull Redfish that were over 36″ as well.

We’ve had great weather and fishing of late so come on down and have a fun day on the water in Cedar Key, Florida.

Cedar key Inshore Fishing Report

cedar key fishing guideThe Speckled Trout & Sand Trout are biting good in both back marsh area and on the flats in about 3 to 5 ft of water.

The Redfish are doing well in the same area but are closer to the islands and oyster bars. We’re using Popping corks and fishing on the bottom using a 1/4 oz jig head tipped w/ shrimp or finger mullet.

The Sheepshead are starting near the pilings and inshore rock piles, here we’re using shrimp or fiddler crabs and small sharp hooks.

Captain John’s Mid Fall Cedar Key Inshore Report

cedar key fishing guideWith the water temperature cooling down, the trout & redfish are biting good. Most anglers are using live shrimp, mud minnows and cut mullet.

The bigger trout seem to be biting better on a Carolina rig use as little weight as possible to keep your bait just off the bottom. You can’t go wrong using a Cajun thunder & popping cork.

The sheepshead are staring to bite around the docks and rock piles inshore.

The Spanish mackerel are still here in plenty of numbers, they’re best out on the edge of sea horse reef in 8 to 12 feet of water.
