It’s Fair Fishin Off The Levy & Citrus County Coast

July 31, 2013

Fishing off the Levy/Citrus County Coast remains fair for this time of year. Lots of Sea Trout in the flats, although the majority have been small. During the summer months most of the larger specs caught are in the deeper waters. We typically fish in 7 to 10 feet of water, and although the numbers are down, the size is up.

Cedar Key Offshore Fishing Report from HookedUp Charters

July 9, 2013

The Gag Grouper are biting good and are a nice size in 45 to 60 feet. We’re using live pin fish, frozen thread fins, menhaden, northern mackerel and sardines. The Red Grouper are in the same depths but prefer deeper water and we’re using the same baits. We are also still catching King Fish and there are plenty of bait pods in 35 to 60 ft.
