  • Captain's Log for the week of 3-24-16

    The inshore fish picture now seems to be complete, as pretty much all of our expected species have arrived this past week. The warm southern breezes ushered in some very tasty pompano. Though they usually ignore most artificial lures my clients landed a few last week. And in the tug-of-war department they put on a very impressive contest. I also saw some of the first bait pods arrive, I believe they were silversides. I don't think it is coincidence that their arrival happens during the spotted seatrout spawn.

  • Vernal Equinox message: Donate your excess 

    One of the pluses of having a productive garden is that there is always extra produce, enough to share.  The reality is that the produce in your gardens will start to go down in quality due to hotter weather, bugs, and spacing of the plants.  You all have done a great job of caring for your beds, but in many cases, you will just not be able to eat all of that beautiful produce before it starts to go down in quality.

    What a beautiful time of the year! It is so exciting to see the farmers getting watermelon fields ready to plant, the red maple are showing off their spring colors by adding a striking crimson to the area forests, and the redbuds are blooming everywhere.

  • Pirate 'n' fish galore

    Hello to all the Cedar Key followers and the visiting invasive Pirates.

    I hope everyone enjoys this li'l shot of cool air and lack of rain. It should be the nicest week of the fall to this point. And I imagine that most, as myself, welcome it.

  • Elite Redfish season comes to an end

    Happy pre-Labor Day Weekend.

    I'm hoping this weather holds for everyone's outdoor plans. I have taken this weekend off for the first time in 14 years. I will be spending the time on the rivers and springs but will kick the work week off on Monday.

    The Elite Redfish Challenge held its season ending events this past weekend. The final results in the Team of the Year was Team Eupro Jeremey Heimes and Travis Hancock with a 1.2l pound lead on Team B and S Trailers Danny Allen and Dwyane Harrington.

  • Don't forget to stay hydrated on the water

    Hello fellow island and fishing folks. Today we are gonna talk about some serious situation that can and may happen while fishing in the summer in Cedar key or any other body of water.

    As I started my trip at daylight last Saturday it was super hot as I started gathering bait I started to sweat immediately. There was no wind at all and which caused my skin to leak ALOT!

  • Nice weekend weather

    Well Cedar Key folks and visitors ended up with quite a nice weekend of weather. The beach and park was busy and water was very busy Saturday lots of folks came in to visit for the day and enjoy mother nature as she was taking it easy on us for a change. We had a great bite most of the time due to a great incoming tide. Water temperatures stayed around 83 most of the days and that has helped tremendously.

  • From early man until now

    Many of us think of recycling as a recent trend but humans have been recycling for a very long time, all the way back to prehistory. Early man would rework broken arrowheads so that they could be reused and not thrown away.  In 1690 the first recycled paper manufacturer in the U S was established near Philadelphia using cotton and linen rags to make paper.
