Gulf of Mexico (Cedar Key to Crystal River)

High water temps have pushed most everything we fish for to deeper water. Lately, the best Trout bite has been early morning, in 6 to 8 feet of water. We’ve recently been fishing the grass flats in the Lowes Bay area with mixed results.

The Reds have also moved out of the creeks into deeper, cooler waters around the outside oyster bars and spoil islands of the Withlacoochee Reefs (Yankeetown).

Most Grouper reports I’ve recently heard of indicate they are offshore in 40 to 60 feet of water, and few and far between. Not a very good Grouper report but it is what it is.

Recently our nearshore strategy has been to fish the grass flats for Trout in the early a.m., the spoil island and bars for Reds mid morning, then chase the birds for some Spanish Mackerel/Bluefish action around mid-day…good way to fill that cooler.

The peace and quiet of the river, the cast of the rod, the strike, and the sound of your voice saying,

"I Got One",

ringing across the water and into the forest.
