As the water temperature cools down Cedar Key fishing will fire up
Cedar Key Inshore Fishing Report
The Redfish have been loving the hot weather and as usual, they’re hanging around the oyster bars, islands, cuts and some flats out in front of the islands. We use a knocker rig or a jig head with cut mullet, shrimp, live mud minnows or live pinfish. And if you’re getting hung up a lot, use a popping cork and short leader to help with that. The Speckled Trout have been biting better now and the bite seems best in the grass flats at about 4-5 ft and we’re get them when we’re for Red fishing too. We’re using popping corks, a leader long enough to keep off bottom and a jig head for weight, live shrimp, pinfish, finger mullet or can use your favorite plastic baits.
The Spanish Mackerel are running good too and of course, the sharks are always hungry and a lot of fun to catch.
We only look for the fishing to get even better as the cooler nights and water temps are coming.
Cedar Key Offshore Fishing Report
We haven’t been offshore fishing much lately, but we found some nice Gag Grouper in 50-58 ft of water and plenty of Red Grouper, but they’re still small. We haven’t figured out were they are going as they grow up because it’s been like this for a while, but its gonna change, I’m counting on it. The AmberJack’s are biting good around the offshore wrecks and larger structure piles & ledges, they prefer live bait but will hit jigs too. We still get some Red Snapper too, but please release them unharmed. The Sea Bass & Grunts are always hungry, we ‘ll start getting the bigger sea bass around November thru February.
So get loaded up and come on down To Cedar Key. As the water temp cools down, the fishing is gonna turn on fire. The King Fish will return but the Cobia are still around the deep structure spots. .. It’ll be a great time for you to catch fish.
