Its Cool Out in Cedar Key and Suwannee But the Fish Are There.

To get a Cedar Key and Suwanee, Florida Fishing Report I called Don at Cedar Key Marina.

He says that big trout are being caught and that the Sheep Head are going like gang busters.

He was at the Cedar Key pier yesterday and a man had caught some 24 trout and ended up catching his limit from the pier. He also said people were catching good Sheep Head by the pilings.

Don wondered over to the docks and all the charters came back with good catches. Several had 25lb Red Grouper on them. One had a Bonita and a good size King Mackerel.

Red Fish are moving into the holes in the creeks and are congregating in layers. And like the trout the ones being caught are of good size.

Be aware that this weekend has small craft advisories, as always check the weather and seas before heading out.

This fishing report is from Don at Cedar Key Marina in Cedar Key, Florida.

Big Bend Fishing Forecast (no hog futures here)

Fishing “Futures”

Typically, I don’t make predictions. Most of my fishing partners would agree it’s bad “juju”.

On this occasion, I will make an exception (with conditions). In my opinion, if these cold fronts we are now experiencing continue, and we get a cooler than average winter, as predicted by the wether Pro’s, I think we are looking at a terrific fall/winter season for both salt and freshwater fishing.

Water temps in the southern Big Bend area have fallen from the lower 80’s a few weeks ago, to the middle 60’s just off the Levy/Citrus County Coasts today.

The rivers and lakes of the Ocala National Forest have also seen a radical drop in temperature.

In both regions, this means one thing: GOOD FISHING.

Both salt and freshwater fish alike will be spawning soon, and the pre-spawn bite is hard to beat.
