Mosquito Lagoon and New Smyrna Beach Fishing Report


This past week on Mosquito Lagoon was great time for both myself and my clients. We brought several fish boat side and the bite was hot. The bait has started to show up through out the Lagoon from New Smyrna Beach south to Whale Tail. There is still some nice pods of redfish out there and they have been chewing well. You can sight fish them with shrimp and artificials or set up on a flat with cut bait or mullet. The trout bite has been good as well. We have been catching several good ones on plugs early in the morning . Then as the temperature starts to heat up moving over to live bait. Target the bait pods and you will find all kinds of life from trout and redfish to lady fish and jacks. It looks like this coming weeks weather is going to be a wash out with a low pressure sitting over the state. I believe once this system passes the bite will get right back at it.
