My clients and I have been practicing a lot of good social distancing this past week on Mosquito Lagoon. The fish have been chewing well with a large number of bait pods gathering from New Smyrna Beach south through Mosquito Lagoon. We have also had a really good shrimp run the last couple of weeks which the trout and snook have been taking advantage of. The winds had shifted the other day to the south east raising the water levels a little . With the higher water the redfish have been cruising the shorelines looking for new feeding opportunities. The bite has also been good and should only continue to get better throughout the New Smyrna Beach backwaters. Earlier in the week we targeted the oysters throughout the backwaters bringing in a great mixed bag from
snook,redfish,trout,flounder,jacks and bluefish. Look for the April afternoon showers to start this coming week throwing the fish into their spring time pattern.
