  • Like the son of the son of a...

    Here we go folks we gonna break down Cedar Keys' waters we gonna tell a few stories. 

    Heck we might even brag a little bit about how cool of a fishing spot we have here. 

      

    This week was just like last week afternoon showers with hot mid day. 

    Redfish biting well and getting better by the way. 

  • Despite the rain, the redfish...

    Hey everyone, hope all is well in the Key. Rain, rain, rain. That’s the big topic of discussion as of the last month or so. I know that too much rain is possible. And, well, I don’t think we are actually to that point but I’m pretty sure that as far as our saltwater health aspect goes, we aren’t far from too much.

    The farmers, well, they have had lots of prayers answered this year. All those rain dance parties paid off.

  • Children enjoy Discovery Day Camp

    Recently, kids who love the outdoors joined the Refuge Ranger for Discovery Day Camp at the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge.  Local children as well as visitors from Orlando joined in the free fun.

  • Water looks like tea, but those...

    Hello fellow Cedar Key folks.
    Hope everyone is successful at finding ways to stay cool.
    Our water has gotten another dose of river water. A couple days of northwest winds pulled it around the corner to us.
    We now have tea for water as of now.
    As you head southeast it clears up a bit.
    The clarity doesn't seem to mess with the fishing much,  just not the prettiest scene.

  • A victory for the fish...of...

    Special to the Beacon

    The Gulf waters have settled and are starting to clear. Some areas are still taint and reddish but reports in Steinhatchee, Cedar Key and Homosassa have clearer waters. This will make scalloping much easier.

  • A couple of tips when scalloping

    Hey everyone, I hope all is good and bellies are full. I say that cause mine is. I loaded up the family last week and went scalloping to our south a lil’ ways. We got all we wanted and my knee is feeling it from swimming so much.

  • New manatee, sea turtle decals...

    New editions of manatee and sea turtle decals are available at local tax collectors’ offices across the state. The popular decals, produced annually by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), provide an important source of funds for the state’s efforts to conserve Florida’s manatees and sea turtles.

    Anyone donating $5 will receive a decal. Donations support manatee and sea turtle research, rehabilitation and educational programs, as well as FWC conservation efforts.

  • Group kayak and picnic event set

    The Friends of the Lower Suwannee & Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuges will hold a Group Paddle and Picnic in the town of Suwannee. Join us for an easy (beginners welcome), short (3.8 miles, two hours), fresh water paddle on Lock Creek, through Riverine swamp along the Suwannee River.
