I hope everyone is enjoying this little shot of nice weather and, man, let&rsquo;s hope it lasts a little while. We need some kind of good trend with no wind, no rain, and maybe, just maybe, our water will get cleared up some.</p> Shark News http://www.cedarkeybeacon.com/content/shark-news-38 <p> <strong>Sharks fall to the Crusaders</strong><br /> <br /> By Robert Kint<br /> Shark Correspondent<br /> The varsity boy Sharks played the Ocala Christian Crusaders in a head-to-head battle on Tuesday, March 11.

Personally, I have had all the cold fronts that I want, though they did set the stage for some really good airboat trips.</p> <p> The biggest change is going to be be water temperatures. We are starting off the month in the upper fifties, which have made most fish very lethargic. But increasing daylight and weaker cold fronts should bring our gulf water into the seventies by April.</p> Captain's Log for the week of 2-04-16 http://www.cedarkeybeacon.com/content/captains-log-week-2-04-16 <p> <span style="line-height: 20.4px;">I hate to state the obvious but man have we had a roller coaster ride with the weather!</span></p> <p> The reds and trout seem to be constantly on the move in and out of the creeks. And the trout will bite one day on the flats and gone the next. Either way, when I catch keeper trout on the flats with 56 degree water temperature I feel very lucky.</p> Captain's Log for the week of 1-28-16 http://www.cedarkeybeacon.com/content/captains-log-week-1-28-16 <img src="http://www.cedarkeybeacon.com/sites/www.cedarkeybeacon.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/img_20160121_133618641.jpg" alt="" title="" align="left" hspace="6" width="151" height="85" /><p> I had some clients from Big Sky Country recently who told me they wanted to catch a variety of fish,so I said, &quot;No problem, you&#39;ve come to the right place...I&#39;ll give you the marine science tour.&quot;</p> <p> 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 &quot;brisk&quot; but much better than January in Montana. Within minutes everyone was hooked up with slot sized redfish.</p>
