The bite has been good these past weeks and should continue to only get better here in the New Smyrna Beach area. We have been boating a mixed bag of redfish, trout, flounder and snook. They have been eating both artificials and live bait. It seems as though live finger mullet and mud minnows have been the got baits for redfish, trout and flounder where as the snook have been more focused on live shrimp. We still have some large groups throughout Mosquito Lagoon and have been chewing well on both shrimp and blue crab. As the weeks move forward toward the start of Spring I believe the bite will continue to be good.
