With the Coronavirus in full swing throughout the whole world it has brought a stand still to life in general. Travel has stopped, restaurants have changed to take out only and some businesses have just closed completely. For me to say that this is not a concerning time in the world right now would be a understatement. There is some great things that I have seen out of this whole pandemic. I have families come together and actually spend time with one another. I have seen large corporations stop thinking of the almighty dollar and switch gears to help a nation in need. I have seen pro athletes write checks to help support the workers in the stadiums that they play in. I have been sanitizing my boat and gear every time it’s used and practicing safe distancing as well. Fortunately the fish are unaware of a pandemic and still continue to chew . There has been a good number of bait throughout Mosquito Lagoon and north into New Smyrna Beach . The water clarity is still good and should be even better after this little front passing in the next day or so. Good luck and be safe!
