Mosquito Lagoon - Saltwater Fishing Report

Summer is definitely in full swing with air temps in the mid 90's here in Central Fl. But the weather is not the only thing that is hot at the moment. We have had some great fishing here in New Smyrna Beach and Mosquito Lagoon area. The trout have been chewing well with many double digit days. Look for the bait holding around the edges of the flats and you will find the trout and redfish in the mix. The redfish bite has been good as well with some great success by starting the morning out on the shallow grass flats that are holding bait. Look for tailing fish or backing fish mixed in with the bait fish. As the sun rises and the water temps warm they will start to move off the shallows to the edges , this is a good time to target them with a ADL spoon or live finger mullet to trigger a bite in a little deeper water. The snook bite has been very good as well, in and around the New Smyrna Beach area. Look for the structure and moving water and you will find the snook. They have been receptive to both live bait and artificials. The beaches from Daytona Beach south to Canaveral have started to come alive with bait pods. With bait pods come predator fish. They have been catching bonita , sharks, bull reds and the occasional tarpon off the beaches. It can always be a little tricky navigating the inlets so make sure you plan your trip and watch the weather.

Good luck and be safe!
