Things are hopping in Cedar Key - and the fishing ain’t bad, either

-A A +A

Hello again everybody, hope everyone enjoyed the weekend. Our lil’ town was pretty busy during the day with lots of folks out wandering, fishing, sightseeing and gift shopping.
We also had some debating/politicking going on. All in all, it was great to see the town full. I don’t think the evenings were as awesome with lots of rain Saturday night, mainly.
The fishing was superb, to say the least. Every trip was a home-run, the main catch of the week was spotted seatrout. We had very close or full limits every trip. Also, the size came up a bit this week with more fish in the upper slot pushing the 20-inch mark.
I saw a few sharks this weekend too, so that may begin anytime.  Our redfish right here in the keys is still a little slow, but with short travel they can be targeted. That should change here in the next two to three weeks.
I would expect water temperatures to keep rising and more and more bait pods pushing inshore. This will put the spring into full spring. If the winds would just stop being so angry all the time, it would be great. Check out the pics from this week and enjoy this weather.
See y’all on the salt.
