Big Cedar Key Red

Cedar Key Inshore Fishing Report

The Speckled Trout are biting good and they’re loving the nice weather and probably the lack of fishing pressure in the last month. They are biting good in the 3’ to 4’ grass flats, bars and bank areas using good ole popping corks and live shrimp. Heck we been using frozen shrimp since we couldn’t get any live lately, your favorite plastics and plugs well for great too.

The Redfish have been hungry too, as usual around the islands and bars using shrimp or cut mullet. There are Spanish mackerel around now too and plenty of sharks to play with. We look for cobia to be here any day as well.

The gates to Cedar Key are open so come on down, please think smart and be safe.

Cedar Key Offshore Fishing Report

The King Mackerel are here and the Spanish Mackerel are here too.

Look around the edge of the reef in about 8’ to 12’ water in the grassy area is good and over in the Kingfish hole area. Lots of good hard n live bottom which holds bait and the Kings are attracted to. The grouper are biting good, you just gotta release them. We have got a few Red Grouper which you can keep in 60’ to 75’. The Amber Jacks are here and in season in May. The cobia should here, we just haven’t been out enough to try for them. You can always get plenty of Grunts and Sea Bass, but for sure the fish are biting so come on out and enjoy the great weather and spring bite.
