They’re Here! Cedar Key fishing picks up with November’s cooler weather
Cedar Key Inshore Fishing Report
The cooler weather has heated up the Redfish & Speckled Trout bite. As usual, the trout like it on a popping cork, live shrimp or your favorite plastic bait. The Redfish love cut mullet, shrimp or live Pinfish, we usually fish with a knocker rig or jig head and fish the bottom near oyster bars, cuts and up close to the islands. The Spanish Mackerel are still around too. Your best bet is to target the Trout & Reds though, the Reds seem to bite best on a incoming tide, the trout aren’t as picky. Soon the Sheepshead and Flounder bite will pick up too.
Cedar Key Offshore Fishing Report
The Gag Grouper are hitting pretty good in the 50 ft range around the rocky & live bottom area’s. The Red Grouper are hitting good too, but still kinda small. The Amberjack fishing was great but it’s now over. The Red Snapper were biting good too through the extended season at the 75 to 100 ft mark, but now we gotta wait till next year to keep them again. The Sea Bass and Grunt are hungry in 28 to 50 ft, they love squid & sardines. The Kingfish are showing up and should continue thru November. As soon as the water cools to 72 degrees the fishing will be on fire.
Till next time “Safe boating n tight lines”
Trust God n Be Blessed
