April 2020 Daytona New Smyrna Beach Backcountry Lagoon

April 20, 2020
Daytona Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

The spring 2020 charter season has come to a screeching slow down with the terrible Virus situation, we are still able to do take charters when requested, but visitors vacations are not happening now so myself and my wife are hunkering down to wait this out until clear sailing returns. Here is my spring fishing report from before the storm arrived: Spring 2020 has arrived to East Central Florida fishing waters, air temps in the 80's, water temps up to the 70's, more baitfish schools appearing on the waters surface with returning game fish like Jack Crevalle, Bluefish and Ladyfish striking the top water bait in early morning. Spring run shrimp are also coming through with the tide, down the intracoastal channel as well as the in the backcountry creeks and back channels. Seatrout, Redfish and Snook getting more active with warming water, ready to ambush bait fish, shrimp and artificial lures in the back waters. Black Drum are spreading through the back water holes and channels, small baby ones as well as fun catching sizes up to about 5 lbs like this one Jim from New Jersey caught with me recently ……………

Snook are always a welcome catch, here in the saltwater estuary which is a nursery of all the different species of coastal fish we have lots of baby Snook hiding in the cover of Mangrove roots and dock pilings, young Luca from Boston got a nice size linesider with me …………...

Normal Redfish have 1 spot on each side of the tail, but some individual Reds have extra spots like this small pretty one caught and released by my long time regular client Mike from Mt. Dora, FL…………

Jack Crevalle are a regular catch here in Florida's coastal waters, sight fishing them is great fun as they regularly feed on surface bait fish and shrimp with white water strikes to cast to for a fast hook up, young Jackson from Daytona Beach caught this one from a small school on a surface attack ………..
