Went yesterday out of Cedar Key and caught a bunch of short reds and one keeper trout. Was a bit windy but managed to have a good day.

We went Sat to check things out after the Hurricane. Plenty of bait around, We caught 12-15 Reds, rats to 26, and a handful of small Trout and of course some catfish. We only fished our spots closest to the Gulf! Its only gonna get BETTER!!!

Using live pinfish about the size of a silver dollar. Cast netting them in sandy spots and known holes without rock. That one was in eleven prong. I didn't venture back in any creeks just creek mouths. You fishing the tournament?

We went over to the Coast and stayed 4 days needed a break from the Hurricane work,, We got our limit of Reds everyday. The Trout was not as easy, by the 3rd day we had them figured out. Great trip beautiful weather as soon as I can figure out how to shrink my Photos I'll send some proof. Tight lines!

Yea that's the only time I like to fish. From an hour or so before low until high. Good luck on your trip.
