Cedar Key Fishing Charters

Located on Florida's northwest coast, approximately 120 miles north of Tampa Florida, lies the quaint Gulf Island community of Cedar Key. This historic and sleepy little town is a hidden gem, that's a favorite weekend getaway destination for many Floridians. While well known for its historic buildings, quaint shops, seafood dining, and beautiful Gulf sunsets, Cedar Key is often overlooked for the incredible sport fishing the area has to offer. We invite you to join Cedar Key fishing guide, Capt. Trey Mikell, of Salt Grass Charters, for a memorable day of fishing for redfish, snook, black drum, tripletail, and seatrout, which can all be found in abundance. This is old Florida fishing at it's best. The coastline is still largely undeveloped and looks much the same as it did 100 years ago. The Gulf waters are clear and shallow, speckled with grass flats and countless small islands. Inshore there are vast expanses of marshes, and backwater where you can fish shallow oyster beds and mud flats while surrounded by mangrove covered shorelines and tall marsh grasses.
