We're having luck south east of Snake Key and Dead Mans channel in 3 to 6 ft of water with trout and reds and some cobia Most are using  a chartreuse 3/8 jig, tipped with shrimp or new penny gulp, or live pinfish hanging from a popping cork.  Out at Sea Horse reef, the Kings and Spanish are biting too.
That's good to hear Cap Nick, we need to get in touch, I bet it's been 5 years since I went fishing with you. I went Saturday with my Uncle out of Steinhatchee we got a lot of short fish but ended up with 4 keeper trout and 2 reds.
Went fishing for spotted trout south of the Waccassasa River Friday north of Yankeetown, Florida and caught a least two dozen with a good number of them being keepers. I keep 7 to have a mess.

Freshwater Fishing Forum / Little St Marys

The little St. Mary's in North Florida is loaded with fish beds. In one river bend I counted ten beds, in another seven, the beds are also scattered up and down the river, they seem to be nice red bellies and it's amazing how well they keep their beds compared to bass.

My nephews are going fishing there this weekend and I'll post their success rate. Come to think of it it probably wont be high, they're between 5 & 12, it well probably be more directing and controlling than fishing.
beer,  fishing is great on the grass flats near steinhatchee and to horseshoe and the steinhatchee fishing reports I've seen seem to indicate that this is true for everyone talking about catching fish.

As far as bait goes I've always liked cajun thunder with shrimp under it. I think I'm like most people, I'm a live or natural bait type guy. I remember asking Don Smith the old owner if Cedar Key Marina who past away last January what caught the most inshore fish in Cedar Key and he told me he believes about 80% of the people use shrimp because at the time that was what he was selling, about 80% shrimp. However if you go to the Seahag or River Haven Marina in Steinhatchee they'll tell you they sell a lot of gulps too. I haven't talked to John Blouse the current owner of Cedar Key Marina about what most people are using but he sent in a cedar key fishing report about a month ago and it mentioned cajun thunder, shrimp and gulps.

I'll see if I can get Capt. Steve of pepperfish key charters to chime in and give some more detail he guides out of Steinhatchee
Campfire Conversations / Empty Seat At The Superbowl !
« Last post by Captain Nick on May 11, 2011 »
A man had 50 yard line tickets for the Super Bowl.
As he sits down, a man comes by and asks if anyone is sitting in the seat next to him.
"No," he says, "The seat is empty."
"This is incredible," said the man. "Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the Super Bowl, the biggest sporting event in America, and not use it."
He says, "Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. I was supposed to come with my wife, but she passed away.  This is the first Super Bowl we haven't been to together since we got married in 1967."
"Oh, I'm sorry to hear that.  That's terrible.  But couldn't you find someone else -- a friend, relative, or neighbor to take the seat?"
The man sadly shakes his head,    "No, they're all at the funeral."
Campfire Conversations / The Ranch Hand
« Last post by Flatlander on May 11, 2011 »
A successful rancher died and left everything to his devoted wife. She was determined to keep the ranch, but knew very little about ranching, so she placed an ad in the newspaper for a ranch hand.

Two cowboys applied for the job. One was gay and the other a drunk. She thought long and hard about it, and when no one else applied she decided to hire the gay guy, figuring it would be safer to have him around the house than the drunk.

He proved to be a hard worker who put in long hours every day and knew a lot about ranching. For weeks the two of them worked hard and the ranch was doing very well. Then one day, the rancher's widow said 'You have done a really good job, and the ranch looks great.. You should go into town and kick up your heels.'

The hired hand readily agreed and went into town on Saturday night.

He returned around 2:30 am, and upon entering the room, he found the rancher's widow sitting by the fireplace with a glass of wine, waiting for him. She quietly called him over to her. 'Unbutton my blouse and take it off,' she said. Trembling, he did as she directed. 'Now take off my boots.' He did as she asked, ever so slowly. 'Now take off my socks.' He removed each gently and placed them neatly by her boots. 'Now take off my skirt.' He slowly unbuttoned it, constantly watching her eyes in the firelight. 'Now take off my bra.' Again, with trembling hands he did as he was told and dropped it to the floor. 'Now take off my panties'. Again he obeyed.

Then she looked at him and said: 'If you ever wear my clothes into town again, you're fired!'
How well are the trout biting from the Steinhatchee to Horseshoe Beach and how about the redfish too?
Aren't shrimp the best bait for trout?
