Cedar Key Florida Inshore Fishing Report

The Speckled trout are on fire using popping corks with your favorite soft bait, shrimp or finger mullet in about 3-5ft of water on the grass flats, you just got to watch the wind, it’s been calm every afternoon, but this won’t last long, spring is about here! The redfish are hungry too and they love mullet and your favorite soft baits, we use just a ¼ oz jig head and work it off the bottom. There are a few reports of Spanish Mackerel being caught and a couple of cobia and we have seen some bait pods, so the fishing is about to be great. The sharks are here, and we saw 2 tarpon jump. So folks, it’s time to get on down here!!

Cedar Key Florida Offshore Fishing Report

The Sheepshead are biting, and the Seabass are very hungry. The gags are biting but you must release them unharmed, and the grunts are always hungry. The Spanish Mackerel are moving in and the bait pods are showing up. We haven’t been to deep water in a while for red grouper but we look for this year being a good year for them, we are due.

We’re only fishing in 24 to 35 feet of water, so come on down, the weather is right and it’s time to have some good ole time fun with family & friends.

Fishing Is Picking Up In Cedar Key

Cedar Key Inshore Fishing Report
The speckled trout in Cedar Key are biting great on the flats and bar areas and the bite seems better on the incoming tide and in the afternoon.

We should almost be out of cold fronts and that means the redfish will be coming out of the creeks. Live Shrimp, mud minnows and your favorite gulps will work just fine, for now we’re still doing better with jig-heads on the bottom fishing kind of slow. But by mid-march the popping corks will be better. And if we start talking about sheepshead, we have the pictures to prove they’re biting good on rock piles and docks.


Cedar Key Offshore Fishing Report
For the best bet, it’s sheepshead fishing on the offshore reefs and rock piles, we use knocker rig and either live or frozen shrimp. The sea bass and grunts are plentiful in 30 to 60 ft and they bite on anything, but we find cut bait gets the bigger ones. The amberjacks are out on the offshore wrecks and high structure, and they love live pinfish but some jigs will work too. The red snapper are thick but must be released unharmed, as well as the gag’s. The red grouper are still hard to find but we’ve been catching some small ones so hopefully they moving back. Oh, we also been catching a couple of Spanish mackerel while sheepshead fishing, that’s a good sign for early migration.

So come on down, enjoy the fun and stop by the marina for your Cedar Key fishing supplies and daily current fishing details!
