Cedar Key Florida Inshore Fishing Report

In between the wind & the waves, the Speckled Trout have been biting great, as well as the Redfish. This time of year, the trout are getting bigger and are more active in 3 to 5 ft of water on all the area’s grass flats and bars. We are using popping corks, plastics and shrimp. Keep the baits about 6” off the bottom and keep popping it, they love the sound. The Redfish love cut mullet, plastics, and shrimp, the big black drum are hitting too. The Spanish Mackerel are biting good out on the flats as well. We look for the Cobia to start running in close any day now on the flats or up by the markers, they will hit just about anything, but they can’t resist live bait.

The Kings and Spanish Mackerels are here, and the Gag Grouper and Red Snapper are biting good but you gotta release them unharmed.
The Amberjacks come into season May 1st, so next week and it should be fun, fishing for Cobia, Kings, Amberjacks and trying for Red Grouper but catching n releasing Red Snapper & Gag’s. We have been getting our best bite in 50-70 ft of water, there are fish in closer, but the bigger ones are deeper, plus that is where you’re gonna find Amberjacks.

The Speckled trout are getting fired up, they are loving this warm weather and the redfish are coming out to play as well. The Trout like popping corks with shrimp, gulps or your favorite plastic baits in 3-5 ft of water on the grass flats and oyster bar areas. The redfish will hit the same thing, but seem to love cut mullet, finger mullet and mud minnows with just a jig head on the bottom, change to a cork if you keep losing rigs to the oysters. The sheepshead are biting around piers and rock piles, they’re not on fire yet, but they will crank it up any day now.

The sea bass are on fire in 25 to 60 ft of water and the deeper the water, the bigger they are. The Gags are hungry but ya gotta release them unharmed, same goes for the Red Snapper. The Red Grouper are still hard to find and due to weather conditions, we haven’t tried fishing out passed 60 ft. I look for them to turn on here in March. Then we should see the Spanish Mackerel show up, then kings and cobia. So, come on down its fixing to get exciting.

So come on down and wet a line, warm weather is heading our way. And Remember to stop by the marina for your Cedar Key fishing supplies, Cedar Key boat rentals and daily current fishing details!
