It seems as though we are in the dog days of summer here in the Central FL area with heat index’s in the 100’s this past week. Although temps have been hot it has not effected the fish as they have been chewing well. It has definitely been a morning bite throughout Mosquito Lagoon targeting trout and redfish in the shallows before the water heats up in the afternoon. The backwaters of New Smyrna Beach has been about the same as well with some of the deeper shorelines and creeks having a little cooler water temps. Artificials and live bait both have been working well for a variety of species like jacks,snook,redfish and trout. The weather forecast looks to be the same for the up coming week so I don’t see the bite slowing down.
