Cedar Key Florida Inshore Fishing Report

The Speckled Trout are biting good, they love the cooler weather. Use popping corks and jig heads with shrimp or your favorite plastic baits. Winter time can slow the fish up some, so be patient and try slow jigging off the bottom too.

The Sheepshead are biting near docks, bridges and rock piles using fiddler crabs, oysters or shrimp. The Redfish are biting best in the back marsh but come out in the afternoon in hi tides when its warmer. They love mud minnows and cut mullet or shrimp.

Cedar Key Florida Offshore Fishing Report

The Gag Grouper season shuts down January 1st, but we have been catching them in 40 to 60 feet of water. The reef grouper are still elusive but they are in 45 to 70 feet on live bottom areas. They are hitting on live baits, frozen thread fin, sardines, mullet and squid.

The sea bass and grunt are always hungry. The Sheepshead should be moving out to offshore rocks late January thru march. The Amberjacks are on the wrecks but must be released unharmed. The ref snapper are hitting good too but please release them unharmed. Pick your days, but winter fishing is usually good.
