Cedar Key’s June Inshore Fishing Report
The Redfish bite has been good as usual around the islands and oyster bars, Dead Man’s, North and Sea Horse key and back towards the airport area too.
The Speckled trout were good and lately have been a little hard to come by for some reason, we just have to work a little harder to get them. The grass flats around Snake key and east & west bank should be good and as the water temp gets higher they will move out to the grassy area out off of Sea Horse reef and the deeper grassy areas. The Tarpon have been showing up and the Triple Tail are here too. The Cobia are still here but sporadic but available around inshore structure & markers.
Shrimp is your best bet for trout or your favorite plastic baits, triple tail love live shrimp and the Tarpon love live bait or mullet. The sharks are hungry & plentiful and a lot of fun to catch.
Cedar Key’s June Offshore Fishing Report
The Red Snapper seem to be hard to find and they are here just not in great numbers. I have had good reports in 100-120 ft which is about a 65 mile run and some are being caught in 65-80 ft too. The Red Grouper appear to be coming back, we are catching more shorts than keepers but none the less it’s a good sign. The Gags Grouper are doing pretty good so far in 45-75 ft. The King Mackerel are still here and fishing seems best in 30-45 ft where you see a lot of bait pods.The Bonita are fun and plentiful in the 58-75ft, again were you see bait pods.
We always set a free line out back while bottom fishing and we pick up Bonitas, Kings and some Cobia that way too, kinda killing two birds with one stone. Just take advantage of all resources while fishing. The Grunt are hungry and the sharks seem to be over hungry this year stealing our good fish too. All fun times though.
Time to fill your coolers and enjoy the day on the water. As always we’ll keep you posted! Till next time “Safe boating n tight lines”
Trust God n Be Blessed
