Cedar Key Florida Inshore Fishing Report
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.

Cedar Key Florida Offshore Fishing Report
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!

Cedar Key Florida Inshore Fishing Report
The speckled trout bite is on fire in 3 to 5 feet of water on the grass flat areas and the cuts near the oyster bars using popping corks with live shrimp, gulps or your favorite soft baits.
The Redfish are doing well too, more in afternoon on a rising tide near the islands and oyster bars using cut mullet, live shrimp, gulps or your favorite soft baits. The air boaters have started heading back to the creeks with the water temp dropping and doing very well.
A few Sheepshead have been caught as well as black drum and this will only get better as winter approaches.

Cedar Key Florida Offshore Fishing Report
The kings are still here in 28 to 40 feet of water over rocky and live bottom areas, using a free line with live blue runners or threadfins and frozen baits work too.
The gags are biting great in 28 to 45 feet of water using live and frozen baits, but they love cut mullet too. Fish more on rocky areas and live bottom and the artificial reefs n wrecks. The red grouper are biting good but most of them are still small, next year should be a great year for them. The red snapper and Amberjacks are plentiful, but you must release them unharmed. Amberjack seasons open back up January 1st, still fun to catch.
The sea bass and grunts (aka Florida snapper) are loving this cooler weather, just use squid or cut sardines on lite tackle it’s a lot of fun and they are great to eat.
The Sheepshead should be starting on the offshore rocks in January.
