Fall Is Finally Here

Cool Weather Steinhatchee Speckled Trout

October 17, 2013

It seems a little late to me, but I think fall is finally here. Morning  air temps in the 60’s all week are one sign.  Speckled Trout and Redfish in the rock grass is another. Sand Trout and Spanish Mackerel on the flats around sandbars  is another. The water is clearing albeit slowly. You can now see spotty  bottom. The south of Steinhatchee is slower to clear but the winds from the north and east will help it clean up. We are having great Trout fishing now and anticipate it getting better. Redfish have showed for me the last couple days on the flats […]

Cedar Key Florida Offshore Fishing Report

October 16, 2013

The Gag Grouper are biting and are on fire in 30 to 45 feet of water and Red Grouper are biting from 40 to 60 ft. The Kingfish are biting good in 25 to 35 ft as well, we landed a 40 lb’r this weekend. Look for live them on hard bottom area’s, you can also fish around, but not to close, to stone crab pots,  buoys, which will be in those areas. Live pinfish seem to be the bait of choice and dancer crabs, but threadfin herring and northern mackerel and cut bait is working as well. Also, just on the edges of […]

Fishin Is Good

October 14, 2013

Fishing off the Levy/Citrus County coasts has been good over the past few weeks, although most of the fish are on the move as fall begins and water temps drop. Recently the larger ‘Gator Trout” aka big speckled trout have moved from the extremely deep flats to the more shallow and warmer waters. Look for them around the outermost oyster bars of the Withlacoochee reefs. The Red Fish have also been frequenting these spots, typically just before and after the high tide. I’ve heard several reports of good sized Black Drum being taken in the skinny water (airboat country) around Porpoise […]

The Ocklawaha River Largemouth Bass Bite Remains Very Good

October 11, 2013

The Largemouth Bass bite on the middle Ocklawaha River remains very good for this time of year. We’re beginning to catch larger fish, which means our next spawning period is about to start. On my most recent trip, October 6, the bite was very aggressive. Nothing like watching bait get knocked out of the water several times just before a lunker Largemouth inhales it! Expect the bite to improve over the next month or so. Now’s the time to book a trip for that once in a life time Largemouth Bass. Until next time … see you on the River! […]
