    The seatrout bite in the lagoon remains ON POINT!

    The bite has continued to be good throughout the New Smyrna Beach back waters. Bait fish seem to be most abundant in the creeks and south into the Mosquito Lagoon. We have been targeting several species like snook, redfish, trout, jacks and the occasional tarpon.

    The artificial bite has slowed down a bit and a lot has to do with the high water temps. You can still get a decent bite early or later in the evening, but by mid morning through late afternoon, artificial baits are not the best choice if you want to maximize your opportunity to solicit a strike from a hungry fish. You can combat this effect by looking for the deeper sloughs and docks with a little bit cooler water temperatures. Here, the fish will be a little more cooperative.

    That being said, the bite on live and cut bait has been awesome! Anything from live pinfish, pigfish and mullet to cut bait has been working well. Just remember that early starts have been best with air temps and water temps rising quickly, making for a much tougher bite as the day moves on.
