The fishing is still good here in the New Smyrna Beach area. We have been bringing several species boat side from redfish to snook and trout, just to mention a few. The bait can still be found throughout the Mosquito Lagoon and north through the creeks of New Smyrna Beach.
The early morning bite has been the best. Target the bait pods on the shallow flats with both artificial or live bait and then moving to deeper ledges later in the morning. The water has definitely been heating up quickly and I have noticed the bite starting to slow down by late morning on the flats. It looks like the weather pattern will continue into next week with hot days and afternoon showers.
