July 2020 New Smyrna Mosquito Lagoon Backcountry

Capt. Michael Savedow
August 1, 2020
Mosquito Lagoon - Saltwater Fishing Report

Summer of 2020 continues with a fair number of charters, not the usual busy vacation season as many are suspending vacations this year, some visitors coming to the area as well as locals doing fishing trips. Fishing remains normal this summer even though the world is anything but normal this year. Lots of variety catching on my backwater lagoon trips, beautiful mornings, calm conditions, light coolness in the air before the afternoon heat comes. Big numbers of Mangrove Snapper and Whiting this summer, a few Seatrout, Redfish, Snook, Black Drum, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, Pompano and always some surprise catches. With the right tide and conditions bull Redfish are along the intracoastal waterway channel through the area during summer, George from Chicago got to experience just such a moment, hooking up and landing this jumbo 48" Redfish .

Normal size Reds are also always a lagoon target fish, taking lures or live bait on drop offs, flats, and near oyster bars, long time client Joe from Tampa caught a beautiful multi spot Redfish in a backcountry creek .

Black Drum also a regular catch in the backwaters here, most are juveniles from 1 to 5 lbs. They are fun fighters on light tackle and take a good picture too, Zak from West Virginia with a fun summer Drum ..
