Fishing has been pretty good in New Smyrna despite poor weather conditions.
The bite has continued to be good throughout the New Smyrna Beach waters this past week. The redfish are still around along with the trout and snook as well. We have also had a large amount of jacks and bluefish to target as well. The water clarity in the middle to south Mosquito Lagoon has become very poor over the past month. The bait and fish are still in good numbers throughout the lagoon but sight fishing has become a little tuff with the water conditions. Live bait and artificials both have been working well. Early morning with a surface plug or a live mullet has been productive. Around mid morning switching over to soft plastics or a spoon has also been productive.
