What's Biting Now

Creek Red

Hitting the Creeks

Florida Sportsman Member: FELLOW-SHIP Went out yesterday targeting reds up the creeks with my micro skiff, which is able to fish in a foot of water when I ask her to. We caught 12 reds half were keeper size, 2 were caught on shrimp the rest were caught on a paddle tail.

Hitting the Deeper Water

Florida Sportsman member: Doc Stressor The trick to finding the gags was to check out a lot of different areas with good relief and only fish the ones with bait showing. Wherever we saw bait stacked off the bottom we caught gags.

Cedar Key Fly Fishing

Lose yourself (and maybe a few flies) in the tangly wilderness of Cedar Key. Cedar Key is flyfishing central for Big Bend waters. The island offers access to a sprawling salt marsh complex of tidal creeks and channels, Spartina grass, oyster bars, and islands covered with pine, cedar, and cabbage palm.
