That's right. It's a redfish haven around Cedar Key Florida. They chose this region to stay in this fall season. They are all over the oyster bars and little cuts leading up into the backwaters. Around grassy points in shallow water 3 to 4ft deep. We're limiting out on redfish each trip now-a-days. I must be living right 'cause I've had redfish for dinner twice this week.
Here are some pictures of folks with their catches from the last week, sept. 25 thru Oct 3. First pic is of Kate from Alaska with a huge speckled trout. That monster is 26.5in. long. Caught it right up next to an oyster bar at Seahorse Key fishing for reds.
Next pic is Kate's son Hoss with a nice red. Next pic is of Ed with his 'bucket list ' redfish. We fished and all fisher-folks caught redfish except Ed.
On the last stop with a few minutes left, Ed caught the biggest redfish of all. Ain't that fishin' for you?
Next pic is of the girls of the Villages retirement community in central Florida.
They caught their limit of redfish and more we had to release.
We're having another hurricane to watch this week, Oct. 5 thru 9th, then the water will calm down enough to get out again. The water should have cooled a degree or two and the fishing will be just that much better.
Call me at 352-221-5463 and let’s go fishing.
Thanks, Capt. Dan
