Cedar Key Inshore Fishing Report The Redfish bite is hot, they like it hot. As usual people are using cut mullet, shrimp, their favorite gulps and spoons. We normally fish on the bottom but use popping corks to keep the bait from getting hung on the oyster bars. The Speckled Trout seem to be in the deeper grass flats and out off the reef. We use both popping corks and fish the bottom, with shrimp, live pinfish and plastic baits. The Triple Tail have been hot too, around floats and poles. We just toss a live shrimp in front of […]

Late Summer Months Remain The Toughest

September 6, 2011

Here in Central Florida we catch fish 12 months our of the year, although the late summer months remain to be the toughest to do so. As water temps soar into the 90’s, the window of opportunity keeps getting shorter. This equates to getting up very early to catch a 2 hour bite window for Redfish and Trout, or running 40 miles off shore to catch and release Grouper. On the other hand, if you are not picky about what you catch, and don’t mind being out in the heat (like most of our younger clients), then summertime fishing might […]
