November Cedar Key Inshore Fishing Report
The Speckled Trout are turned on and they love this colder weather. They’re on all the grass flats in front & back of Snake Key, North Key, Gomez and Dead Man’s Key, all are producing nice fish. Use a popping cork and 2-3′ leader, 1/4 oz jig head and live shrimp or your favorite plastic baits. The Redfish & Black Drum are biting good too fishing the same areas but the Reds like it up close to the oysters bars and islands. And some people have been getting good snook too. Ya’ll gotta come down and get into this fun.
The bite is on fire, the weather is cool, just watch the wind report but generally you can fish somewhere out of it.
November Cedar Key Offshore Fishing Report
The extra Snapper season didn’t pan out so good and we only had 2 days of good weather to try for them, but it was nice that they let us try.
The Grouper are biting and are on fire, they love the 70° water temperature and we’ve have been getting our limits on both Red & Gag Grouper. It’s been a blessing so far, the 45′ to 58′ depth has been great, we even had a 1/2 day trip in 28′ of water and did well at that depth too.
At the same time you’re bottom fishing, always throw out a free line of sardines or threadfin and keep some small rods ready to pitch, the Mackerel are here too and the reef and the king fish hole seem to be a good place to fish.
Also the kings are here too, I like to free line while bottom fishing but you can troll for them, as well as the Gags too.
It has been a lot of fun lately, it’s nice to have a good cooler full by 12 pm and go in early.
Again, ya gotta come on down and enjoy the fun.
Till next time “Safe boating n tight lines”
Trust God n Be Blessed
