Seafavorites – Cedar Key

Get ready to explore the flats of Cedar Key, FL with Seafavorites Fishing Guide Service!  If you’re looking to catch a variety of fish and experience some awesome Florida inshore fishing, then Captain Joe Richard is your guy! He’s won a dozen fishing tournaments, written books and magazine articles about fishing, and he’s also the former book editor of 5 Sportsman’s Best Book Titles.

Today, Capt. Joe focuses on his business and helps customers land big inshore fish. He takes his clients out on a 16’ Alumacraft Jon boat, perfect for drifting low coastal waters. She’s powered by a new 2018 4-Stroke Yamaha engine and equipped with a GPS, safety gear, and top-quality rods and reels. She accommodates up to 2 guests and you can both fish at the same time.

Your main target species are Cobia, Redfish, Black Drum, Spotted Seatrout, Tripletail, Spanish Mackerel, and more! You’ll do a bit of drift fishing and casting using artificial bait. You can also catch live bait on your trip and use it to target larger fish. Capt. Joe will take out the big guns when battling heavier fish, such as Cobia, Tarpon, and inshore Shark species.

State-of-the-art spin tackle, lures, live bait, and your fishing license are all included in the price. Just please note, due to the size of the captain’s boat, there is a weight limit of 220 lbs per passenger. This limit ensures a safe weight distribution and stress-free fishing environment.

Join Seafavorites Fishing Guide Service on an inshore adventure in Cedar Key, FL and get ready to catch some amazing fish! You’ll have an expert and professional guide by your side who specializes in landing monster fish, so you’re chances of success are high. Just bring snacks, drinks, sunscreen, and a hat and get ready for a fun day of fishing!
