Cedar Key Inshore Fishing Report
The fishing action is awesome right now. The redfish are on the sand bars and islands, and they always love mullet but shrimp or gulps work too. The trout are biting and are on fire and the Spanish Mackerel have showed up. The bait pods have returned as well and we’ve spotted 2 Cobia but didn’t catch them. The Speckled Trout are hitting in shrimp and your favorite soft baits, use popping corks and a 1/4 oz. jig-head on the grass flats and cuts in 3 to 5 ft. of water.
Cedar Key Offshore Fishing Report
The Spanish Mackerel are here and we look for kings and cobia shortly. The Sheepshead are still biting great but I expect that to start slowing down in the next 2 or 3 weeks. The gags & red snapper are biting great but you must release them unharmed. The red grouper are still very scarce but we are catching them but small and there’s not a lot of them either. The grunts and sea bass are biting good in 20-45 ft. I look for the Kings and the cobia to show up in the next few weeks so have rods rigged and ready to go while your bottom fishing. The water temp is up to 68 degrees and climbing.
So come on down and enjoy the spring fish bite and stop by the marina for your Cedar Key fishing supplies and daily current fishing details!
