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.

So, get your gear ready, load the boat and come on down. 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 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!!

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.
