Cedar Key Offshore Fishing Report

March 15, 2012

The best bet for offshore fishing is Sheepshead, they are on fire. Head out to the reefs and concrete piles, using light tackle, 1 or 2/0 sharp hooks with shrimp, fiddler crabs or oysters. They are ranging from 12 to 20 inch. Also the Sea Bass are “thick as thieves” and of course the ole faithful grunts.

Speckled Trout And Redfish Are On The Flats

March 1, 2012

It’s going to be interesting to see how Spring comes in this year. As you all know, the winter has been very mild. Speckled Trout are on the flats with Gulf water temps in the 60’s. I still find the bigger Trout near a creek ditch or pothole. But remember, if you flush them, it’s over. So approach to within casting distance quietly. Cast your Saltwater Assassin 1/16 oz jighead with an Assassin 5″ shad to the far side of the pot hole or ditch and let it sink without to much slack, so you can feel the strike as […]
