The Redfish bite is on fire, they love it hot. In Cedar Key, anglers are catching them all around the islands, oyster bars and grass bars. They favor fresh cut mullet and hit on your favorite gulps and plastic baits too.
The trout are a little sluggish and have moved out on the edges of the reef but they’re still are being caught on the grass flats using popping corks with shrimp, plastic baits and slow sinking lures. There has been some triple tail, Spanish Mackerel and plenty of caught sharks too. A few people had reports of Snook and we look for the bite only to get even better as fall approaches as well.

The grouper are biting good in 35 to 70 ft of water, we seem to be getting more keepers in the deeper water. The red grouper are coming back good and there’s plenty of them but they’re still just a little small. The Gag Grouper are doing good also. We do well using threadfins, mullet, menhaden and live pins. The Kingfish and Cobia should be showing up again through October. We have been seeing schools of Spanish Mackerel and using a chum bag and casting plugs and spoons to bring them in, it’s a lot of fun and they’re eat good too. The grunts and sea bass are plentiful as well.

Cedar Key Florida Inshore Fishing Report

The water has been a little dirty causing a tougher bite, but it’s still good fishing and the trout have been biting good in 4-5’ of water on the grass flats and in the cuts. Use your favorite plastic baits and live shrimp on popping corks. When the water heats up soon they will move to some deeper water and out by the reef in the grassy edges.
The redfish are biting good on oyster bars, up on the island edges and cuts fishing on the bottom using cut mullet and plastic baits. But if you’re getting hung up a-lot, use a cork to keep your bait just off bottom.
There’s been some tarpon spotted too, they seem to love medium size mullet and the sharks are plentiful to.

The red snapper are biting good in 55-75 feet of water using frozen threadfins. We put out a chum bag and fish some towards the bottom and some with light spinners free lining, it’s a lot of fun like that. The red grouper are mostly small but we’ve got a couple keepers and the gags are plentiful but we’re only getting a few 24 inch or bigger in 50-70 feet on the rocky bottom areas. We’re still getting some King fish and Cobia offshore too. The fish are biting so come n get’em while the fishing is hot.
