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 […]

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. The Redfish bite has slowed a bit over the past few weeks, but I expect it to improve as we approach the next new moon. The Scallops have been a big hit this year. Plenty for everyone, and reports […]

Gulf Fishing Is Alive And Well

A Fine Yankeetown Cobia

April 29, 2013

Fishing on Florida’s Nature Coast is alive and well. Last Thursday all the planets aligned. The tide, time, temperature and weather conditions were all perfect for an offshore trip. I and two of my fishing partners, Doug and Pat, struck out about 8 a.m. from the Yankeetown Public Ramp. We ran offshore about 15 miles and thanks to Doug’s driving, it took about 30 minutes. Before the anchor had took a set, Pat was hooked up. Cobia everywhere! The “fire drill” was on. There’s nothing like sight fishing Cobia. On my second bait, pinfish (free lined on top), I was […]

Gulf Fishing Is Alive and Well

January 23, 2013

Fishing in the Gulf of Mexico is alive and well. Our recent warm spell has the Speckled Trout and Redfish moving from the skinny water (creeks and guts) out onto the shallow flats. Depending on the weather, this may or may not be a temporary situation. January and February is your best bet for those huge spawning Gator Trout, although typically this time of year it takes a kayak or air boat to find them. Better get them while the gettings good. The Sheepshead bite has also been very good this season. Look for them around structures such as pilings and […]

The Speckled Trout, Redfish And Sheephead Are Biting

January 14, 2013

The Speckled Trout and Redfish are biting good in the back marsh areas. Since it was warmer this weekend, they were biting good on the south side of snake key and in deadmans channel, in 5 to 8 ft channels. The sheepshead are biting good around the docks and some oyster bars and within 2 or 3 weeks they should start showing up on the offshore reefs. Till next time, tight lines and safe boating Capt. John blouse This Cedar Key fishing report is from Cedar Key Fishing Guide Hookedup Charters.
