The water temperature is hot and so is the redfish bite. The bait of choice is fresh cut mullet, but shrimp, pinfish and gulps work too. The incoming tide seems best around the islands and oyster bars. The trout are biting good too, but the bite seems best in 5-7′ water. They are also out on the edge of seahorse reef. There have been some cobia and mackerel caught and the tarpon have been plentiful as well and they seem to love mullet. The sharks also have been abundant and some big hammerheads, tigers and bulls, using bigger cut baits.

The snapper are still thick at 55-75 feet, we use chum bags and weight them down 30ft and its not long till they swamp the boat, sardines or threadfins seem best. I seem to catch bigger ones free-lining out the back of the boat also. The red grouper are making a good come back, still small but they are biting good. The gags are being a little finicky but it’s hot and we are catching shorts and a few keepers, I look for the bite to pick up better this fall. There are plenty of nice sea bass and grunts too and every trip has produced good catches and has been a lot of fun. So come on down and enjoy a day out on the water.

So come on down to Cedar Key, the weather is finally good, the wind has stopped blowing and the fish are hungry. Remember to stop by the marina for your Cedar Key fishing supplies, Cedar Key boat rentals and daily current fishing details!

The Speckled Trout bite is great and they are still on the grass flats in 3 to 5′ of water and around the bars & cuts. People are using popping corks, 1/4 oz jig heads with live shrimp, gulps and assassin soft baits. The Spanish Mackerel are in close too as well as many kinds of sharks. We have been catching Cobia around the markers and flats and many Tarpon have been spotted too. The Redfish are biting good and it’s only getting better. We also have been getting some triple tail around the buoy markers, using shrimp with small hooks and no weight, just drift it up to them.

The Kingfish are still patrolling the coast and the Cobia have turned on pretty good too. The Spanish Mackerel are out around the reef grassy areas at about 10′. The Gag grouper and red snapper are biting and are on fire in 45 to 60 ft, and we can’t wait till Thursday June 1st to start keeping some. The Red Grouper are on the rebound, we are catching them but they are only 15 to 18″, so we look for that to get better as the months go on.

So come on down to Cedar Key, the weather is finally good, the wind has stopped blowing and the fish are hungry. Remember to stop by the marina for your Cedar Key fishing supplies, Cedar Key boat rentals and daily current fishing details!

Cedar Key Is Springing Into Action

The waters are warming up and hopefully the wind has calmed down. The speckled trout and redfish have been biting good on live shrimp, gulps and assassin baits. The grass flats all around Cedar Key are producing and the islands and oyster bars are producing reds too. The sharks are plentiful, we have had some tarpon and triple tail action too. The mackerel and cobia have shown up as well. Don’t forget your chum bag.

The kings and cobia have made it here. Last weekend there were about 25 nice kings caught and a few cobias. The reef area and structure spots are holding bait which equals bigger fish, if your impatient, troll or just find bait pods, set out chum and some free lines n bottom rigs and wait for the action. The gags and red snapper are thick in 40-60 ft, but must be unharmed and released. The red grouper are biting but mostly too small to keep, still a good sign since we haven’t seen them in a year. And of course the grunts and sea bass will always help feed the family.
Come on down n enjoy the spring “hot” fishing.

The fishing action is awesome right now. The redfish are on the sand bars and islands, and they always love mullet but shrimp or gulps work too. The trout are biting and are on fire and the Spanish Mackerel have showed up. The bait pods have returned as well and we’ve spotted 2 Cobia but didn’t catch them. The Speckled Trout are hitting in shrimp and your favorite soft baits, use popping corks and a 1/4 oz. jig-head on the grass flats and cuts in 3 to 5 ft. of water.

The Spanish Mackerel are here and we look for kings and cobia shortly. The Sheepshead are still biting great but I expect that to start slowing down in the next 2 or 3 weeks. The gags & red snapper are biting great but you must release them unharmed. The red grouper are still very scarce but we are catching them but small and there’s not a lot of them either. The grunts and sea bass are biting good in 20-45 ft. I look for the Kings and the cobia to show up in the next few weeks so have rods rigged and ready to go while your bottom fishing. The water temp is up to 68 degrees and climbing.

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