Oct 2018 Mosquito Lagoon New Smyrna Daytona Beach Backcountry

Capt. Michael Savedow
October 27, 2018
New Smyrna Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

We are already getting east breezes off the ocean early in Autumn 2018, this starts the process of clearing the water in the Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon Backcountry after a long Florida summer with the usual cloudy warm water. Easterly winds push in more clear ocean water at nearby Ponce Inlet on each incoming tide which filters through the intracoastal waterway resulting in clearing water through the fall. The fall mullet and baitfish run is going strong this year with a flood of finger mullet schools moving south through the area with game fish in tow feeding on the bait fish, schools of good size Jack Crevalle, Bluefish, Ladyfish and Spanish Mackerel to name some, also Tarpon of varying sizes from 10 to 20 lb. teenagers up to 50 plus lb. adults are also in with the baitfish schools. The Jacks and Blues frequently are surface attacking mullet in the morning as they push mullet up to the surface and strike in white water splashes making for great sight catching, a bait or lure cast in the action is usually a sure thing, multiple hook ups are common with these schooling Jack attacks, Wayne from Ohio caught some this way, lots of fun on light tackle…………………..

Black Drum have been a regular catch here all year in the backcountry, catching them on shrimp, sizes from pretty little ones of 1 lb. up to nice drag pulling 5 lb. fish which are a good battle on my light tackle outfits, Timothy from Georgia with a nice one………………..

Seatrout are also a year round, almost every trip target species, they school up more in the cool months and are more scattered in the warm months, we catch smaller school size specks on shrimp and small lures, larger ones usually on live bait fish and larger lures, Stephanie from Orlando with a nice Mosquito Lagoon Trout………….

My backcountry variety mixed bag catching trips always have lots of different species, it makes it interesting never knowing what will bite next, on a recent fun trip with a family from Atlanta, Katie caught and released a nice Redfish…………..

This has been the summer of Pompano here in the back waters as we have been catching them all year, not the norm for here, they usually move north for cooler water in summer most years, has has been a nice addition to this summers species list, Isabel from Orlando with a nice one………………..
