This past week was like a little taste of Spring here in New Smyrna Beach. We had clear skies and highs in the 80’s along with some very crowded boat ramps. The bite has been good with several redfish and snook coming boat side this past week. The weather looks like it could be taking a dip over the next couple days into the 60’s which should only help the fish throughput Mosquito Lagoon. Live bait has been the go to baits this week from finger mullet to shrimp and the occasional blue crabs. If artificials are more your style then plugs, spoons and small soft plastics have been working well.
