Mosquito Lagoon - Saltwater Fishing Report
New Smyrna Beach , Daytona Beach and Mosquito Lagoon
The weather has been hot and so has the bite here in New Smyrna Beach. We have had some great days with numbers of trout and redfish coming boat side . Look for the large bait pods early holding on the edges of the flats and you will find trout. I like to throw several different baits from soft plastics to live bait another great choice is a plug . As the mid day approaches look for the trout to move off the edges to a little deeper water. The redfish have been holding on top of the flats early tailing in the grass and cruising along the shorelines looking for a easy meal. They have been eating several types of baits like cut bait, live bait , soft plastics and personal favorite a Aqua Dream Spoon . Just like the trout the reds have been changing their habits by mid day and moving into the pot holes and sloughs. The tarpon have moved inshore and off the beaches. Make sure you up size your tackle when going after these fish they are called the silver king for a reason. I like to throw suspending plugs , twitch baits and soft plastics along with a variety of live baits .
Good luck and be safe.
