It's mid February 2018 and warm and clear with light winds. Thats been the daily weather situation
down here in Cedar Key, Florida for just about a month now. The water temperature was down to a chilly 55 degrees and chased
all the bait fish away. That leaves no fish to catch. It happens every year and we usually have to wait until the water warms
up a bit around the end of March. Not so this year. The water temp is up real good. Thursday Feb. 16th the water was a warm
68 degees F. Warm enough to bring the speckled trout back to feed on the 'flats' near Cedar Key, Fl. The flats are large areas
of 3ft. to 4ft. of grass and sandy bottom. Excellent habitat for small fish to grow up in and predator fish to feed on. It
seems like and early spring season with air and water so warm, but I'm still a little cautious. I can remember April 8 2007,
it was 34 degees F. We could still get a cold front or two and cool off the coastal waters around here and chase those big
plump trout out of here. But for now I'm going fishing and catchin' trout in the clear water with a warm breeze across the
deck of my 24ft. pontoon boat. Swivel fishing seats fore and aft and plenty comfortable. A new Yamaha 4 stroke and all the
fishing gear you'll need. Call me at 352-221-5463 and we'll pick a great day and go out angle some. I'll fillet 'em all back
at the dock and you can eat fresh fish you caught that evening. thanks, Capt. Dan
