Cedar Key’s August Inshore Fishing Report
The Speckled Trout are biting good but seem to be in front in the deeper grass flats, Seahorse Reef, North Key and further south of Snake Key. Use popping corks with shrimp or your favorite plastic baits. Also try just a 1/4 oz jig head with shrimp and jig back slowly off the bottom. If you have any questions stop by the marina and we’ll be glad to help. The Triple Tail are biting good, around the markers and the lease areas, using free lined shrimp. The Redfish are turning on and they love pinfish, shrimp and cut mullet, us a knocker rig or just a jig head on the bottom. The islands, cuts and passes are all good areas, they move a lot so just keep trying different areas until you find them, dead man’s key and area is always a good spot.
Cedar Key’s August Offshore Fishing Report
The Gag Grouper are biting good and the Red Grouper are too but there’s a lot of shorts, we use frozen threadfins, menhaden and northern mackerel and pine pinfish is a favorite, but always use dead bait first and if the bite slacks off, use dead bait again to get the grunts fired up and the grouper will move back in for ya.
The Amberjacks just started back up, and they are hungry around structures in 60′, they love live baits but also love jigs too.
The sharks are hungry, so try to get them to the boat before they get ya, never fails they always want to eat your big ones, not the small one, go figure.
Offshore there is plenty of action, one way or another.
Time to fill your coolers and enjoy the day on the water. As always we’ll keep you posted! Till next time “Safe boating n tight lines”
Trust God n Be Blessed
