Dec 2020 Mosquito Lagoon New Smyrna Beach Backcountry

Capt. Michael Savedow
December 5, 2020
New Smyrna Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

Long awaited cooler weather has come to East Central Florida with the arrival of November, water temps finally lower after a long summer, the fall migration of fish has been moving through the area as they work their way south, schools of Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish and Bluefish, attacking the migratory finger mullet on the surface with white water strikes showing the way to sight casting hook ups with lures or bait and drag pulling bent rods. Water levels also beginning to drop after flood levels of late summer following much rainfall we have had this year. All the different species of our resident inshore saltwater fish are caught here in the north Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River at New Smyrna Beach, including Seatrout, Snook, Redfish, Sheepshead and more. Black Drum are a staple species in the holes, back creeks and channels, here is Noah from Orlando out with me on a recent trip which landed many different fish including a few good Drum .
