  • 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.
