You Got To Woman & Man Up To Get Them
Cedar Key Inshore Fishing Report
The weather this month has not been too friendly, but we and others have been out when possible.
The Speckled Trout have been biting in 4 to 6 ft of water on the grass flats and around the bars, we’ve had extreme low tides but waiting until in-coming tides have been best using shrimp on popping corks to keep your bait off the bottom and to make noise to attract them.
The Redfish have been best in the back marsh since colder and lower water push’s them back there. Using mud minnows, shrimp and cut mullet, with just a jig head to have baits naturally float to the bottom.
The Sheepshead are also hitting around rock piles, bars and docks and pilings, using shrimp, oysters, and fiddler crabs on a knocker rig and 3/0 hook. We look for better weather soon for more days on the water
Cedar Key Offshore Fishing Report
We haven’t been out much due to the poor weather. But when we’ve gone out the sea bass have been biggest in 50 ft and the grunts are there too. The grouper are in 45 to 70 ft but you must release the gag grouper. And it’s still kinda hard to fine keeper size Red Grouper.
The Sheepshead should be hitting soon on the offshore rock piles and wrecks in 20 to 45 ft, take shrimp and fiddler crabs using a knocker rig with a 3/0 hook and as little weight you can get the bottom with.
Watch the weather report and come on down, the fish are hungry.
