With 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.
Till next time, tight lines & safe boating

This Cedar Key fishing report is from Cedar Key Fishing Guide Hookedup Charters
Inshore fishing off the Levy and Citrus County Coasts has improved over the last few weeks.
Record numbers of good sized Speckled Trout have been caught around the Trout Stake, just north of the Withlacoochee River.
The Redfish bite has also improved. The best time to fish for the Reds is on the last of the flood tide. For best results use either cut Mullet or pinfish fished under a popping cork.
The Seatrout bite has been best on the outgoing tide, preferably in the a.m..”Cajun Thunders”, tipped with pinfish are hard to beat for that once in a lifetime “Gator Trout”.
