it's been cold and windy here in Cedar Key, Florida for a few days now. It's January 16th, 2021 and we are catching speckled
trout around these keys and grassy flats. It takes a little patience and technique to pull trout out off the flats in the
colder times of the year. The water temperature was 50 degrees F last trip out. Thats real cold. The fish aren't as active.
They move a little slower. Not as fast to bite. I'm not tossing out shrimp on a float and letting that hang down in the water
to the tops of the grasses,as I do in the warmer seasons, I tie a soft plastic bait on a 1.5 foot fluorocarbon leader and
drag or bounce it across the bottom thru the grass real slow. When the water temps are below 60 degrees that method of trout
fishing is great. If you haven't tried that yet, give it a try. I've used the 'Gulp' 3in. Sugar and spice glow shrimp ( the
glow is from little specks embedded in the lure that give off a brightness down in the dark green water to attract the attention
of some of those big plump trout hunting around down there). I'm allready looking forward to spring fishing when the air and
water temperature warms up and the Cedar Key area explodes with fish over the flats and at the opening of creeks and around
all the oyster bars. If you can pick one of those warm witnter days with bright sunshine and light wind, lets go fishin'.
I'm ready with my 24ft. comfortable, accommodating pontoon vessel with all the right gear you'll need. If it's too cold right
now, Spring is real close and you can call me at 352-221-5463 and we'll find a good day to float out and around the keys here
in Cedar Key,Florida and catch redfish, speckled trout, mangrove snapper(you know, those little tasty ones), and all the species
that come here in the Springtime of the year. I'll be ready everyday,thanks Capt. Dan
