cedar key fishing guideCedar Key Inshore Fishing Report

The Speckled Trout are still biting good but have moved to 5 to 8 ft. of water and the Redfish are biting good around the sand bars and islands. Both are hitting on live shrimp, mud minnows and finger mullet.

The Spanish Mackerel seem to be on the grass flats and on the southeast side of seahorse reef in 8 to 10 ft. of water. Use a chum bag and shrimp or cut bait to bring them in.

The sharks are hungry too and the cobia are still here, but there aren’t as there was last month.

Cedar Key Offshore Fishing Report
The Red Grouper are starting to show up in 50 to 60 ft as well as gags and red snapper. They are all hitting on frozen baits, squid and live pinfish.

The King Fish are here too, look for bait pods in 35 to 45 ft. of water, areas south west and west of cedar key have been good.

I look for the cobia to start showing up offshore as well, as they don’t seem to be plentiful in close lately. So keep your pitch rods ready.
