  Its been a warm winter season here in Cedar Key Florida. Today, February 18th, its 88 degees F. the water tempreature is 66 degrees and the fish are loving it. The speckled trout have been around all winter. Redfish are feeding off the oyster bars that surround all the keys here. Usually the water temp is too cold to attract many species during the winter months, but not this year. We're 'limiting out' on trout each trip. I have a few trips scheduled for the beggining of March and expect great fishing then. I have a 24ft. pontoon boat that will accomodate your family very well, so if you're going to be in the area of Cedar Key Florida,( the Northwestern Gulf of Mexico side), call me up at 352-221-5463 and we'll pick a good day and go fishing. The spring season is always action packed and I'll be out amongst the 'flats' and 'bars' snatchin' em' up. I'll fillet all the fish back at the dock and slip them in a ziplock with a little ice so you can enjoy a fresh fish dinner at home. thanks, Capt. Dan

 A Red too big. We had to release Don Hyland's redfish after this pic. It was 1 in. over the legal limit of 27in.
