  • Captain's Log for the week of 1-28-16

    I had some clients from Big Sky Country recently who told me they wanted to catch a variety of fish,so I said, "No problem, you've come to the right place...I'll give you the marine science tour."

    Day one we jumped on my airboat (on the coldest day of the winter so far) and took a short boat ride to the local tidal creeks. They called the morning air "brisk" but much better than January in Montana. Within minutes everyone was hooked up with slot sized redfish.

  • If your resolution is to catch a bigger fish, now's the time

     Happy, happy, happy New Year’s resolution week. We all have something that we would like to be better in life. And if you don’t think you do – well, that might be your answer: admitting there’s an issue cause I promise there’s something. I hope we all prosper in our goals and make 2015 a year to brag about.

  • Playin' hide-and-seek on the water

     Hey, everyone, sorry I missed some weeks–been a little busy with kids' ball games and praying for the wind to not blow the water out.

    ¥ou get it, situational things of that sort. Oh also it's hard to type with your fingers crossed that the gators will win. Ha ha yeah white knuckles and all, it didn’t help. 

    As far as the fishing goes, it’s been pretty consistent with a hot spot here and there when the weather settles–the usual for this time of year. 

  • Mighty Youth Conservation Corps breaks records

    Summer work begins early in the morning for the Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) students at the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge. Before the sun makes it over the long leaf pines in the forest, the ice is already in the cooler. Equipment for the day’s work is loaded into the truck along with other essentials, but nothing that would attract bats.

    All I can say about inshore fishing is WOW! From Keaton Beach to Homosassa the inshore fishing is great. Trout, redfish, sheepshead, and mullet limits are common up and down the west coast of Florida. With water temperatures in the seventies, our fish are feeding like it’s March! I cleaned over 100 trout last week (several charters) and hardly any of them had anything in their stomachs. A few had tongue fish and flounder, but most were empty. So, the combo of increased metabolism and lack of forage sets the stage for great fishing.

  • Riding the sea

    Kayaking around Cedar Key is a great way to experience nature. 

  • Warm weather is a challenge

    Hello everyone. We have a big week here in lil' 'ole Cedar Key. Independence Day is always a good time in the key: lots of folk, lots of fish, lots of flashing lights and lots of family time – all great reasons to spend time near the Gulf Coast and with the key- life-way of thinking.

  • Fishing heating up in Cedar Key

    Hello everyone. I hope everybody has a great Father’s Day weekend planned. The weekend is gonna be hot, but nice. Those little heat showers may be an issue but the mornings will be good to go, I feel.
    Our water temps are rising and the grass flats are growing back really nice. Some of our spots for trout have grass a few feet deep. That’s awesome to see, because a month ago they were still behind on growth. 


  • Fishing report: Cap'n Danny

    Hello everyone, hope all is well and y’all are getting to enjoy the weather this week –  it’s darn close to perfection. The fishing wasn’t far from the same.
The conditions haven’t changed much over the past few weeks – the water temps have risen to high 70s. But, the brown water is still here and not going anywhere soon.
