SUWANNEE RIVER/CEDAR KEY

Hey there folks; the summer vacation has come and gone,‚ÄĮand just like last year,¬†the fish have really turned on.‚ÄĮThe redfish bite has been awesome the last couple days. Just about¬†everyday, we have caught¬†some nice keepers.‚ÄĮWe are catching most of them on cut mullet,¬†fished right on the bottom. The fish are biting on both the incoming¬†and outgoing tide. There¬†is¬†tons of bait around the oyster bars,¬†and when the fish are active,¬†you will see them striking at the bait. Then,¬†all you need to do is set up,¬†and get your baits in the water.¬†We have also been catching some nice¬†snook,¬†while¬†redfishing¬†around the oyster bars and sandy holes. Most of them are over the slot size, but there are some slot fish showing up. This year make sure you get your¬†snook¬†permit because they are great table fare.‚ÄĮ‚ÄĮThey also seem to be where¬†there is a lot of moving current.
The trout bite is still slow, but should be turning on anytime,¬†with the water¬†temps.¬†starting to cool down.‚ÄĮThey will slowly start moving back to the flats around the islands. We will still be using the Double X Tackles B52 super sounder with a 1/4¬†oz¬†Jim’s jig beneath it. The color will depend on the water color. My favorites are the Saltwater Assassin’s Green Moon and Stinky Pink. They have a¬†fairly new¬†color,¬†called Orange Glow,¬†and it seems to be working great in stained water.
Well folks I just want to encourage¬†y’all¬†to still get on the water any chance you get,¬†because it’s an awesome time of year.‚ÄĮ‚ÄĮHope this has helped¬†y’all¬†out, and as¬†always,¬†get outside and enjoy what God has made for us!
