This past week brought us a little colder temperatures and some breezy conditions Daytona Beach south through Mosquito Lagoon. It looks as though the weather will be pleasant until the latter part of the week. Hopefully making for some good fishing the rest of the week. The water has emptied quite a bit pushing the redfish and trout into pods and even some schools. We have been boating some nice trout and even a occasional snook around the docks from Daytona Beach south to New Smyrna Beach. We have been using live finger mullet and live select shrimp but have also boated them on artificials as well. Plugs and diving baits have been working well around the structure. The redfish and black drum have been chewing well throughout Mosquito Lagoon. They have been eating a variety of baits from plugs, spoons, soft plastics and live bait as well. Look for the fishing to get even better after this next upcoming front. Good luck and be safe!
