Cedar Key Florida Inshore Fishing Report
The Redfish are still biting here in Cedar Key and they’re on fire. They seem to love the incoming tide, fresh cut mullet, shrimp, mud minnows or gulps. Fish around the oyster bars, cuts and up close to the islands. The Speckled trout are biting good too, using popping corks with jig heads with gulps or shrimp. The Spanish Mackerel are coming through also and they will bite the same baits but you may want to use a heavier leader or wire to keep from getting cut off. The tarpon are biting good too, they seem to like whole mid-sized mullet. Try floating a bigger rig out while fishing for trout and reds, they seem to be around deeper cuts and look for mullet schools running for their life.
Cedar Key Florida Offshore Fishing Report
It’s still tuff to get red and gag grouper that are the legal size, but we are catching a good amount of them, mostly in 50-70 ft. of water. There have been a few cobia caught too. The Spanish Mackerel are here and I look for the Kingfish to be here any day. There are plenty of bait pods busting all around in 25-35 ft. of water. The red snapper are still plentiful but you must release them unharmed. The sea bass and grunts are still biting well. I do look for the gag grouper bite to turn on as the water temperature drops using threadfins, sardines, mullet and live pinfish
