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.

Cedar Key Florida Offshore Fishing Report

The Kingfish are biting good in 25 to 35 ft as well, we landed a 40 lb’r this weekend.

Look for live them on hard bottom area’s, you can also fish around, but not to close, to stone crab pots,  buoys, which will be in those areas. Live pinfish seem to be the bait of choice and dancer crabs, but threadfin herring and northern mackerel and cut bait is working as well.

Also, just on the edges of sea horse reef, the Spanish mackerel are biting and are on fire as well. Some like to troll spoons, and others just sit, put chum bag out and fish on the bottom with 1/2 oz sinker and wire leader and using a float with a 6 ft 100lb leaded, using shrimp, finger mullet or cut bait.

In the next few weeks, the sea bass should be biting and in larger sizes as the water temp drops.
