With a little bit of a low pressure sitting off the coast the past couple of days, it has triggered a good bite on Mosquito Lagoon. The red fish and trout have been chewing well with the little bit of cloud cover the pressure has provided. The water clarity through out the Lagoon System from New Smyrna Beach south is still looking good. There is plenty of bait both inshore and off the beach which is a good sign of things to come.

The fishing has been steady the last couple of weeks on Mosquito Lagoon. The trout bite has been good early with it slacking off as the day go's on. The redfish can be found backing and tailing in the shallow grass early then moving out to the deeper grass flats later in the day. Both have been very receptive to plugs early and as the day go's on moving to ADL Spoons and soft plastics. The tarpon are still hanging around along with the snook as well. Both have been chewing pretty good on live bait just make sure you time the tide right. We are expecting afternoon rain the rest of the week which hopefully will help cool the water temperatures a bit in the Lagoon.

The weather has been extremely hot and humid for the past month or so. Even with the extreme heat the bite has stayed consistent until a low pressure decided to sit on top of us for a few days. There was about three days that they made us work for a bite but we still managed to pull out some good numbers and quality fish. As the low pressure has pushed away from the coast the bite had been a lot better and getting back to normal.
The weather has been a little unpredictable this past week but the fishing is still holding steady on the Lagoon. The bite has been good in the mornings and slacking off a little by the middle of the day. We still have plenty of bait through out the Lagoon and New Smyrna Beach area. Find the bait and you will find your game fish. The trout , redfish and many other species have been hanging around the bait pods looking for a easy meal.
