Dec 2020 Mosquito Lagoon New Smyrna Beach Backcountry

Capt. Michael Savedow
December 18, 2020
Mosquito Lagoon - Saltwater Fishing Report

Winter has set in with the first cold snap of the season in East Central Florida, frost on my yard is a sure sign, water temperatures reaching down into the 50's begins the true winter pattern. Fish be come less scattered and more concentrated, some in the deeper holes and channels, some on the flats when the sun shines and warms the shallow water. Searching skinny water for Redfish and Seatrout is a winter favorite here at Mosquito Lagoon, the holes, sloughs and channels can hold Black drum, Sheepshead, Whiting, and more. If it doesn't get too cold, the Snook will continue to feed also on drop offs and close to structure in the back country. Clearer water means lighter stealthy rigs to hide it from the target fish. A few days ago Jeff from Kentucky out with me on a nice size Black Drum caught off the bottom of a deep cold water hole .

We can at any time catch surprise fish in the back waters, at times can be Sharks, uncommon species of Snapper, we've even caught a few Bonefish on my boat in the last few years, one surprise species that we've caught quite a few of now days are Permit, normally a tropical species now being caught here and there up here closer to north Florida, here I'm modeling one caught recently by a client ..
