  • Anglers: FWC needs data on red...

    By filling out a survey card or making a phone call, anglers can provide Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) biologists valuable information about red snapper and other reef fish.
    Biologists distribute survey cards year-round to anglers along the Gulf coast, to gather information about fishing trips targeting red snapper.

  • Fishing in discolored water has...

    Ok folks, it’s nice to see the rain. Man, it’s nice.
    Things to expect after the rain: the inside waters will most likely have a red tint. This happens when the roots of the woods drain into the gulf. Tanic acids change the color of the water. If the rain lets up to a normal amount, the water will settle pretty quick. Now I know most think this is a bad thing. Well, if you use it to your advantage, it can be a good thing.

  • CK dolphins noted for feeding...

    Researchers from the University of Massachusetts say there’s something special about Cedar Key dolphins.

  • Crowds come out for Memorial Day...

    Hope everyone’s Memorial Day was a safe success. The town was full. It seemed like just a step or two under a festival. The water ways, the streets and the sidewalks were busy.
    Me and Capt. Nick stayed in town to cut back on pulling the boat all around. We had double booked both days. We also had a friend/ client’s family in town for his 60th birthday. And his exact words were, “ Cedar Key and fishing with Capt. Danny is my favorite thing to do”.

    Green anoles, a type of American lizard, are often called American chameleons because they can change color, but they are not chameleons at all.
