The Cedar Key Speckled Trout bite is awesome on the grass flats, cuts and around oyster bars, using popping corks and 1/4 oz jig heads with shrimp or any of your favorite plastic baits. If you use small pinfish you will catch the bigger ones.

The Spanish Mackerel are hot on the flats and the Redfish are hitting good too now. Better on incoming tide, they love cut mullet, finger mullet, shrimp and gulp baits too. We fish them with jig heads on the bottom but you can use popping corks as well, and that helps from getting hung up a lot on the oyster bars.

The Sharks are hungry also and we look for Cobia on the flats, cuts and around the markers any day now. They prefer live bait but also love eel baits or swim baits, we seem to do better in the afternoon but still bite in morning too.

Cedar Key Offshore Fishing Report

The King Fish are here, as well as the Spanish Mackerel, out on the reef and the Kingfish Hole area, look for bait pods or go to the rocky-live bottom areas, put out a chum bag and they will come to you, we fish just off the bottom and have free lines out back, using a wire leader and a stinger rig, frozen threadfin, live baits and blue runner is a favorite.

The Gag Grouper are biting and are on fire but gotta release them. The Red Grouper are biting fairly well but still tough to get them keeper size. The Red Snapper are on fire but gotta release them too. Off course the grunts and Sea Bass are always hungry and very good to eat.

The Cobia should be here any day with the fishing and weather getting better, come on down to Cedar Key and enjoy the fun.

So come on down, the weather is great and the fish are hungry.
