  • Captain's Log: It's a...

     

    Finally March has arrived, and so many changes will occur this month.

    Let's hope spring comes in like a lamb and not a lion. Personally, I have had all the cold fronts that I want, though they did set the stage for some really good airboat trips.

    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.

  • Captain's Log for the week...

    I hate to state the obvious but man have we had a roller coaster ride with the weather!

    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.

  • Captain's Log for the week...

    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.

    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. 

  • Testing the limits

    A Cedar Key girl is one of few in the state who participates in adapted track and field for persons with specific physical limitations.

    Eleven-year-old Annie McCain was born prematurely and has a mild case of cerebral palsy, her mother, Jenny said, adding that it effects her balance. She also said Annie is a very bright girl and is in the gifted program at her school.

  • If your resolution is to catch a...

     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...

     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. 

  • Species of the Week
  • Mighty Youth Conservation Corps...

    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.
