Cedar Key Inshore Fishing Report

The Speckled Trout bite is slowing down a bit, they seem to be more in the deeper grass flats, out by seahorse reef grassy area and around the bars and cuts. Use popping corks and a longer leader with shrimp and your favorite plastic baits and gulp baits.

The Redfish have been biting good around the islands, bars and cuts, they love cut mullet, shrimp, live baits and gulp baits. You can use just a jig-head or popping cork to help from getting snagged on the oyster bars. The Triple Tail have started biting around rock piles, floating debris, poles n docks, just pitch a live shrimp to them and usually they attack it. The sharks are hungry and I’m looking for the tarpon to start running but haven’t heard yet, they should be here soon. Be patient fishing when water temps are about 90 deg, the Reds love it but other fish can be slow to bite or hard to find but they are here.

Cedar Key Offshore Fishing Report

The Snapper are here but have went deeper this year, we found them in 75 to 100 ft, on live and on hard bottoms using thread fin herring, sardines, squid or finger mullet. Also, if you chum or put out a chum bag they will come to the top and you can set out a free line with light tackle and have some real fun. The Gag Grouper are being a little tough but we are catching them. The Red Grouper are plentiful but still under sized. A few kings are still around and cobia too. The grunts are always hungry and make a nice cooler filler. There are a lot of schools of Bonita so keep a spinner rigged with a jig or plug and cast into them when then slow or drive over to them, it’s a blast and they make good cut bait too.
So come on down to Cedar Key & get in on the fun.

 

So come on down, the weather is great and the fish are hungry.
