• Fishing Report: Check your list as spring approaches

     Windy days and windy nights – that seems to be this week’s routine.

  • Two nature walks planned

     On Tuesday, Feb. 19, the Friends of the Lower Suwannee & Cedar Keys NWRs will sponsor two nature walks. 

  • This is what we do in Cedar Key

    Hey everyone. I hope all is well and you’re getting a chance to soak up some summer sun in February. These days are perfect in my mind, because I like cold winters. As you’ ve heard me preach about the need for cold fronts is one reason. But the other is, folks, it’s hot plenty of months and a little cold weather never hurt no one. Not to mention, it’s great for the gas mileage and house electric bill.

  • FLOW addresses water pollution standards

    More than 50 people showed up recently to take part in a discussion at a Lake City meeting dealing with new water rules aimed at keeping Florida’s water clean, though some in attendance had doubts about how effective the rules ultimately will be.

  • Cedar Key’s Elite Redfish Challenge

    Well folks, we are looking at wrapping up January pretty soon and it has been a pretty laid back weather pattern. Hope February is the same, but maybe a little more cold weather would be okay by me. The rain we are getting with these fronts is important.

  • Governor to consider springs restoration money

    Millions of dollars could be funneled toward springs protection and restoration projects in the state if approved by the governor later this year.

    Anne Shortelle, executive director of the Suwannee River Water Management District, said in a meeting last week that SRWMD alone had submitted about $15 million worth of proposals for springs projects upon a recent request by Gov. Rick Scott.

    The projects, tentative at this point, will be presented as a first-ever line item for springs restoration in the governor’s budget.

  • All not sold on aquifer recharge plan

    State water managers are moving forward with a project they say could help replenish dwindling portions of the Upper Floridan Aquifer, though others are questioning the logic behind the move.

  • A bad day fishing in Cedar Key is better than a good day at work

    When friends from several cities want to get together and have fun, there’s nothing better than a day spent fishing with a Cedar Key charter guide. And you get to take dinner home too. This group went out with Jim Keith and Jimbo Keith and came home with their limit. They also had to practice their “catch and release” technique with the other fish they hooked.

  • Windblown fish

    Capt’n. Danny Allen is taking this week off to do a little fishing. He got some time to go out last week with Mr. Ron of Colorado, pictured. The Capt’n. and Mr. Ron caught 15 knots of wind out of the Northeast with no water clarity. But, hey, they killed it for four hours, and boated eight reds and eight legal trout. These two specklers were 21.5 inches and another four were 19.75 inches. 

    It was a heck of a day for the conditions, said Capt’n Danny. Good work Ron...
